Academic Honesty Policy

The curriculum at Iowa Wesleyan College is built upon the Life Skills—
communication, reasoning and problem solving, valuing, and social
effectiveness. In conjunction with these integral Life Skills, the College
has developed a strict policy to deal with those students who commit acts
of academic dishonesty—plagiarism and/or cheating. Such acts will not be
tolerated in any form by the faculty and staff, and will carry stiff penalties.
The policy, outlined in the College Catalog, includes the definition of academic dishonesty, the
sequence of offenses and their accompanying penalties, the procedure to be
followed by faculty members when an offense occurs, the explanation of the
appeal process, and the description of record maintenance.
