Student Discipline and Academic Misconduct

Student Discipline and Academic Misconduct

The Dean of Students Office encourages honesty, integrity, and respect among UW-Platteville students as well as promotes responsibility by accepting consequences of behavior. The Dean of Students Office responsibilities regarding student discipline are two-fold: to ensure that students are treated fairly, and to hold student accountable to university policies and regulations. The office is guided in this effort by Chapters 14, 17, and 18 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code and by those regulations specific to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Details regarding student disciplinary procedures and the conduct expectations in chapters 14, 17, and 18 is located at https://www.uwplatt.edu/department/dean-students/conduct.

The university may discipline a student for academic dishonesty, including any of the following or similar examples of false representation of a student’s performance:

  • Cheating on an examination.
  • Collaborating with others in work to be presented, contrary to the stated rules of the course.
  • Submitting a paper or assignment that contains ideas or research of others without appropriately identifying the sources of those ideas; stealing examinations or course materials.
  • Submitting a paper or assignment as one’s own work when a part or all of the paper or assignment is the work of another.
  • Stealing examinations or course materials
  • Submitting, if contrary to the rules of a course, work previously presented in another course.
  • Tampering with the laboratory experiment or computer program of another student.
  • Knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above, including assistance in an arrangement whereby any work, classroom performance, examination or other activity is submitted or performed by a person other than the student under whose name the work is submitted or performed.
