Academic Honesty Statement

Students in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Western Michigan University are responsible for awareness and understanding of the policies and procedures in the undergraduate catalog or graduate catalog that pertain to academic integrity. These policies cover cheating, fabrication, falsification, forgery, multiple submission, plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse. If there is reason to believe a student has been involved in academic dishonesty, the student will:

  • Be referred to the Office of Student Judicial Affairs.
  • Given the opportunity to review the charges.
  • Have the opportunity for a hearing.

If students are uncertain about an issue of academic honesty prior to the submission of an assignment or test, they should consult the class instructor.
