Academic Policies

Academic Dishonesty

Scholastic dishonesty constitutes a serious violation of community standards at Messiah College. Any act which involves misrepresentation of the student's academic work or that abridges the rights of others to fair academic competition is forbidden.

Academic dishonesty includes plagiarism, cheating on assignments or exams, submission of the same (or substantially the same) paper in more than one course without the prior consent of all instructors concerned, depriving others of necessary academic sources, and sabotaging another student's work. The Student Handbook includes a description of measures that will be taken in cases of academic dishonesty.
