Performance Academic Integrity Issue: “You
are responsible for making yourself aware of and understanding the policies
and procedures in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs that pertain to
Academic Honesty. These policies include cheating, fabrication, falsification
and forgery, multiple submission, plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse.
[The policies can be found at http://catalog.wmich.edu under Academic Policies, Student Rights
and Responsibilities.] If there is reason to believe you have been involved
in academic dishonesty, you will be referred to the Office of Student
Conduct. You will be given the opportunity to review the charge(s). If you
believe you are not responsible, you will have the opportunity for a hearing.
You should consult with your instructor if you are uncertain about an issue
