Academic Dishonesty Consequences

Academic Dishonesty Consequences

To recap, Fairfield University takes academic honesty very seriously. According to the course catalog, in the event of such dishonesty, including plagiarism:

  • professors are to award a grade of zero for the project, paper, or examination in question
  • professors may record an F for the course
  • when appropriate, expulsion may be recommended
  • notation of the event is made in the student’s file in the academic dean’s office

And fallout from academically dishonest practices doesn’t end when you graduate. People who cheat or plagiarize can lose their jobs and/or their vocational licensures, face legal action or be publicly called out for unethical behavior.
