Academic Integrity Violations

One of my students has an alleged academic integrity violation. What do I do and how do I report an Academic Integrity violation to the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity?

  • The first step of this process is to review the Academic Integrity Code which is located in Section 5: Procedures and Appendix A: Sanctioning Guidelines.
  • Next, you must complete the Instructor Statement page of the Academic Integrity Incident Report (https://my.marymount.edu/Offices-Resources/Academic-Affairs/Academic-Integrity/Info-for-Faculty/Report-an-incident). This report includes the student’s information, the course information, the violation explanation, and the proposed sanction.
  • You will then request to hold a conference with the student. Conferences are typically held in person but may also be held though phone, email, or other electronic communications. During the conference, you will discuss the alleged violation with the student and the proposed sanction. The student then has the opportunity to fill out the Student Response section of the Academic Integrity Incident Report. This is where the student indicated whether they accept responsibility for the alleged violation or requests a hearing. For your reference, the following video describes an Academic Integrity Conference: https://youtu.be/HlAvUSu3OYc
  • After completion of the conference and the Academic Integrity Incident Report, the next step is to turn in all relevant documentation beginning with the incident report and followed by the original paper and TurnItIn.com report if applicable, to the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity through the online submission form (https://cm.maxient.com/reportingform.php?MarymountUniv&layout_id=2).
  • If the student indicates they are accepting responsibility on the Academic Integrity Incident Report, the instructor will be responsible for applying the proposed sanction. If the student indicates they would like a hearing, the instructor is responsible for attending the hearing and presenting their side of the case.

i.  If a student accepts responsibility, the student will be required to complete the RAISE Tutorial at a cost of $20 charged to their student account.
