From:  Manual of Academic Policies and Procedures

 B.                  All students are expected to observe generally accepted principles of scholarly writing in all examinations, compositions, papers, essays, tests, quizzes, reports, and dissertations whether written in the classroom or outside.  Sources of information used by a student in the preparation of work submitted as the basis for credit, or for a grade, or to satisfy graduate or undergraduate thesis requirements shall be clearly indicated in some conventional manner, such as by the use of quotation marks, footnotes, and bibliography.

C.                  Students are forbidden to submit as their own any project, paper, or creative work which is in whole or in part the work of another.

D.                  The use of a term paper writing service, such services being prohibited by Connecticut law, is academically dishonest and violates the rules of scholarship. 

E.                   All examinations and quizzes are to be completed without reference to books or notes, except when the instructor of a course shall have given explicit authorization for an “open-book examination” or some other specified sort of assistance.  Except as authorized by the instructor, no student is to give or receive assistance in the completion of an examination or quiz.

 Action to be taken in event of an alleged act of academic dishonesty

L.  2.     To report that the student is considered guilty of the alleged violation beyond a reasonable doubt, and to recommend one or more of the following:
