Hudson County Community College's Academic Integrity Policy

Academic integrity is central to the pursuit of education. For students at HCCC, this means maintaining the highest ethical standards in completing their academic work. In doing so, students earn college credits by their honest efforts. When they are awarded a certificate or degree, they have attained a goal representing genuine achievement and can reflect with pride on their accomplishment. This is what gives college education its essential value.

Violations of the principle of academic integrity include:

• Cheating on exams.
• Reporting false research data or experimental results.
• Allowing other students to copy one’s work to submit to instructors.
• Communicating the contents of an exam to other students who will be taking the same test.
• Submitting the same project in more than one course, without discussing this first with instructors.
• Submitting plagiarized work. Plagiarism is the use of another writer's words or ideas without properly crediting that person. This unacknowledged use may be from published books or articles, the Internet, or another student's work.
