Any violation of the standards of academic integrity and conduct could result in disciplinary action, including the expulsion from the Institute. The reasons for disciplinary action include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Any offense that results in the loss of active church membership, in good standing.

  2.  Any lack of respect or courtesy to the administration, faculty, personnel or to a student of the Institute.

  3. Nonpayment of school fees.

  4. Cheating. (a) Using unauthorized notes, aids or information when taking an examination; (b) reproducing, circulating or gaining access to an examination; (c) submitting work done by someone else as your own; (d) copying or paraphrasing someone else’s essays, projects or other work and submitting it as your own.

  5. Plagiarizing. Submitting someone else’s work and claiming it as your own or neglecting to give appropriate documentation when using any kind of reference materials. Plagiarism, whether purposeful or unintentional, includes copying or paraphrasing materials from the study guide, textbook, someone else’s writing or any other source, whether published or unpublished. Any words, thoughts or ideas taken from any source must be properly documented.
