Academic Integrity Tutorial for Undergraduates: Academic Dishonesty Consequences

Academic Dishonesty Consequences

Academic Dishonesty Consequences

Brooklyn College takes academic integrity very seriously.

In the event of academically dishonest behavior, including plagiarism:

  • professors might award a grade of ZERO for the project, paper, or examination in question
  • professors may record an F for the course
  • when appropriate expulsion may be recommended
  • notation may be made in the student's file in the academic dean's office

And fallout from academically dishonest practices doesn't end when you graduate.  People who cheat or plagiarize can lose their jobs and/or their vocational licensure, face legal action, damage their chances of getting into graduate school, or be publicly called out for their unethical behavior.
