Website Address for this Policy
When cheating is discovered, the faculty member may give the student an F on the work involved or in the course. If further disciplinary action is deemed appropriate, the student should be reported to the Dean of Students. In addition to being a violation of academic honesty, cheating violates the Code of Student Conduct and may be grounds for probation, suspension or expulsion. Students on disciplinary suspension may not enroll in any courses offered by The University of Southern Mississippi.
The Dean of Students is responsible for the review of this policy every four years (or whenever circumstances require immediate review).
