Academic dishonesty in the form of cheating, plagiarism and collusion are serious offenses and will not be tolerated at Koc University. University Academic Regulations and the Regulations for Student Disciplinary Matters clearly define the policy and the disciplinary action to be taken in case of academic dishonesty. However, if proven guilty, usually the toughest punishment is given to the student, especially if (s)he tries to mislead the commission by lying to them.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to, copying from a classmate or providing answers or information, either written or oral to others. Plagiarism is borrowing or using someone elseís writing or ideas without giving written acknowledgement to the author. This includes copying from a fellow studentís paper or from a text without properly citing the source. Collusion is getting unauthorized help from another person or having someone else write oneís paper or assignment.
