NationsUniversity Honor Code

 

NationsUniversity requires that all students complete assignments and exams in an ethical manner, keeping with the values of NationsUniversity and the Honor Code. Examples of Honor Code violations include unauthorized assistance, cheating, fabrication, multiple submission, false citation, plagiarism, not following other syllabus instructions.

 

1. Unauthorized assistance: When a student receives help on an assignment or exam when independent work is required.  An example of unauthorized assistance is taking an exam and asking a fellow student to help answer a question. In some cases, students may be allowed to work in groups on an assignment. However, students must follow the guidelines stated in the syllabus regarding assistance from others.

 

2. Cheating: Using your own or someone else's assistance or work on an assignment/exam when it is not permitted. An example of cheating is using study notes when taking an exam, if the syllabus says that no notes are permitted when taking the exam. Cheating is also asking a classmate, friend, etc. for answers to exam questions.

 

3. Fabrication: Fabrication could also be called "lying or not telling the entire truth about a situation. An example of fabrication is a student who did not do an assignment (for example, give a short Bible talk), but writes a paper saying that they actually gave the talk.

 

4. Multiple Submission: Submitting an assignment that a student has previously used for another course. An example of multiple submission is submitting an essay for ENG 1 and then submitting the essay again for ENG 2. Even work that has been changed slightly is considered a multiple submission. Students must do a new assignment each time.

 

5. False Citation: Citing a source for an assignment that the student did not actually use. An example of false citation is a student saying they used three (3) sources for their COMP essay, when they only used two (2) sources.

 

6. Plagiarism: Plagiarism is the Honor Code violation that occurs most frequently among students. Plagiarism is using someone else's work, but saying that it is your own and not giving credit to the source. Students must acknowledge all sources that they use for assignments. An example of plagiarism is using a quote from a book or from the Internet and not saying that it came from a book or Internet. Students cannot copy information from a book or Internet or other source without saying that it came from that book/Internet/other source. Plagiarism gives credit to the student when the student did not actually think of the ideas.
