Reporting Academic Integrity Violations

Faculty:

If an instructor decides to make a formal accusation of a violation of the academic integrity policy, the faculty member should provide a letter describing the case for academic dishonesty within fourteen days of discovering the alleged infringement. The faculty member should also forward a copy of the letter to the Office of Student Conduct [Sanders 204] or via email to judicial@fitchburgstate.edu. Below you will find a sample letter you can use.

Not a Faculty Member:

If the accuser is not a faculty member, and s/he decides to initiate the formal process, the accuser must submit an incident report and/or relevant information to the Office of Student Conduct [Student Affairs, Sanders Administration Suite 204] or via email to judicial@fitchburgstate.edu.
