For the learning experience to be successful at Madison College, faculty and students must trust that both parties will act with honesty and integrity. To foster this environment, you should know what academic misconduct is and what is expected of you.
As a Madison College student, it is important that you:
- Become familiar with the rules and consequences of academic misconduct.
- Approach your instructor if you are not sure what behaviors constitute academic misconduct (citing information from the web, for example).
- Inform your instructor if you believe you have witnessed an incident of academic misconduct. You may report your observations without fear of retaliation.
- Know that helping someone else cheat is a violation of the rules and may result in misconduct charges.
If you have questions, please contact the Madison College Academic Integrity Officer Sarah Z. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (608) 246-6595.
