Academic Honesty

Orange Coast College has the responsibility to ensure that grades assigned are indicative of the knowledge and skill level of each student.

Students share that responsibility and are expected to refrain from all acts of academic dishonesty. Procedures for dealing with any violation of academic honesty will be followed. Additionally, the Student Code of Conduct, Board Policy 5500, and Administrative Procedure 5500 shall be applied to incidents of academic dishonesty.
