Test Security and Academic Dishonesty Policy

The Testing Center strives to provide test security by carefully tracking tests and scrap paper. In addition, the Testing Center supports and adheres to standards for academic honesty set forth in the student code. Incidents of academic dishonesty in the Testing Center are treated seriously. Students found to be cheating will lose Testing Center privileges for all classes for the remainder of the semester. If a student is observed using unauthorized aids, the Testing Center Staff will:

  1. Stop the student and quietly ask him or her to leave the Testing Center.

  2. Retain the test and all relevant materials as documentation of an invalid test administration.

  3. Report the incident, in writing, to the instructor, division dean, appropriate administrator, and/or testing publisher.
