a. Students should be prepared for all academic exercises. This will reduce the motivation to violate the Honor Code or to cheat. Students should take steps to ensure that other students cannot violate the Honor Code or cheat from them. Additionally all students must:
(1) Not condone cheating on the part of others.
(2) Refuse to assist others in fraudulent acts, efforts to violate the Honor Code, or cheating.
(3) Ask the professor for clarification if they do not understand how the Honor Code pertains to any given assignment. In the absence of explicit instructions from the professor, students should presume that all work must be their own and that they may only utilize help and resources that are routinely offered by the college to students such as reference librarians and tutors.
(4) Students must inform the SHC or the professor if they have knowledge of or have observed an infraction of the Honor Code. Failure to report a violation may constitute a violation of the Honor Code of its own accord.
(5) Students are expected to comply with the Honor System. (Failure to cooperate with the Honor System procedures may result in a failure to comply charge, filed through the judicial system.)
(1) Leave the room during examinations and quizzes after giving out the test and answering questions,
except in cases when technical or specialized circumstances require the instructor's presence. The
instructor may exercise discretion in deciding to remain or return for a short period of time as a resource,
but under no conditions shall the instructor proctor an exam or quiz.
(2) Contact the SHC regarding suspected infractions of the Honor Code.
