Statement of Academic Integrity - San Diego Christian College
Integrity requires adherence to moral principle and character. The academic community of San Diego Christian College expects students to complete all assigned work honestly. Honesty begins with oneself and extends to others. Mutual trust and respect grow as each individual in the community takes responsibility to perform with personal integrity. An act of dishonesty affects the atmosphere of trust on the entire campus.
In addition, the administration and faculty believe that dishonesty in the completion of assignments, examinations, or written papers is contrary to the teachings of Scripture. Cheating results when you depend on someone else to do the work necessary to complete coursework. Plagiarism is the handing in of written work that is not your own. It includes verbatim copying of someone else’s ideas without proper acknowledgement, and paraphrasing someone else’s words without proper acknowledgement. Both of these are acts of dishonesty.

Academic Integrity -- Southern California Seminary
Southern California Seminary expects its students to conduct themselves honestly in their personal and academic lives. If evidence arises of academic dishonesty, the dean of the program will investigate the matter and take appropriate action.
Plagiarism. Plagiarism is knowingly and willingly treating another person's work as one's own. It includes taking another's words, sentences, ideas or outlines without giving proper credit to the source, including that of copying from other students. Plagiarism is copying or imitating the words, sentences, outlines, or ideas of another person and presenting them as the student’s original work.
Plagiarism will not be tolerated at SCS. To avoid plagiarism, give credit to the original source by using footnoting or in-text citation as required by the student’s program.
Aiding or Conspiring in the Commission of Plagiarism. Helping someone commit plagiarism is viewed as equally dishonest as plagiarism, for both parties.
Multiple Submissions. Multiple submissions is submitting a paper that was written by the student for another course as if it were an original paper satisfying the requirements of the present course. Attempting to submit such work is deceptive and a form of academic dishonesty. The minimum penalty is failure of the paper; test, etc. where the deception occurred. When a student thinks previous work by him or her has some potential for expansion, improvement, or to serve as a starting point for another line of thought, the student should contact the professor and explain the situation. The professor has discretion to what extent a particular previous work my be permitted. The professor may require that a copy of the previous work be submitted with the later work.
