Cheating and Plagiarism

Click here for the Cheating and Plagiarism information in the Student Conduct section on page 60 of Purdue Calumet’s Student Handbook.


Misconduct for which students may be subject to administrative action or disciplinary penalties include:

Dishonesty in connection with any University activity. Cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly furnishing false information to the University are examples of dishonesty. The commitment of the acts of cheating, lying, stealing, and deceit in any of their diverse forms (such as the use of ghost-written papers, the use of substitutes for taking examinations, the use of illegal cribs, plagiarism, and copying during examinations) is dishonest and must not be tolerated. Moreover, knowingly to aid and abet, directly or  indirectly, other parties in committing dishonest acts is in itself dishonest.*

Forgery, alteration, or the unauthorized use of University documents, records, or identification.
