As a follow up to our conversation last week, I want to reiterate you have violated the following policy:

CCA students are expected to maintain standards of academic integrity. The college defines four types of academic dishonesty:

Cheating, or the intentional use or attempted use of unauthorized materials, information, or study aids in any academic or studio exercise
Fabrication, or the intentional and unauthorized fabrication or invention of any information or citation in any academic or studio exercise
Plagiarism, or the intentional or knowing representation of words, images, concepts, or ideas of another as one’s own in any academic or studio exercise
Facilitating academic dishonesty, or intentionally or knowingly helping or attempting to help another to violate any provision of this code
This is unacceptable behavior. As a result, I have lowered your participation grade by 1 full grade point. This means, that at the end of the term, should your participation points calculate to an “A”, it will be lowered to a “B” and if they calculate to a “B” it will be lowered to a “C,” etc. Expect the result to lower your overall grade for the course.

Further, I am requiring you to submit to me via email, no later than May 1, a research paper on academic integrity with a minimum of 5 pages and maximum of 10.

This paper is to be in MLA format, complete with citations and will be checked for plagiarism. When writing research papers, it is imperative you produce original work that is yours alone. Should you quote a source, be sure to cite your source. Should you choose not to complete this assignment, I am happy to facilitate a conversation between you and the Chair of the First Year Program.
