Penalties

A range of penalties is possible for academic integrity violations. The standard penalties are listed below, but more severe penalties including an unforgivable F for the course can be applied.

Occurrence

Standard Penalties

First Occurrence

For violations not related to an Exam or MyITLab Bonus Project, no credit will be given for the assignment. An additional 50-point penalty will be applied.

For violations related to a MyITLab Bonus Project, no credit will be given for any MyITLab Bonus Project. An additional 50-point penalty will be applied.

For violations related to an Exam, a failing grade (F) will be issued for the course.

Second Occurrence or After

Failing grade (F) will be issued for the course. This penalty can be applied even if the student had no notice of the First Occurrence violation.

This academic integrity policy continues to be in force even after you complete Computer Science 101. Post-completion penalties may be enforced through modifications to the final grade recorded on your transcript.

If an academic integrity violation is suspected, you will be notified via e-mail. You may appeal to the Course Coordinator within 10 class days of the notice being sent. Failure to appeal or reply within this time period will be considered an admission of guilt and applicable penalties will be applied.

Additional information on WVU’s academic integrity policy is available in the West Virginia University Academic Catalog. If you have any questions about this policy or if an activity is allowed, it is your responsibility to check with your instructor beforehand.
