UHMC Academic Dishonesty and Student Conduct Code

While taking any exam for a UH course at a UHCC testing center or Non-UH proctoring location, you are expected to comply with the UHMC Academic Dishonesty and Student Conduct Code, and any testing center rules and regulations.

Academic Dishonesty
(UHMC, 2015, Academic Dishonesty, p. 83, para. 1)

Cheating includes but is not limited to giving unauthorized help during an examination, obtaining unauthorized information about an examination before it is administered, using inappropriate sources of information during an examination, altering the record of any grade, altering answers after an examination has been submitted, falsifying any official University record, and misrepresenting the facts in order to obtain exemptions from course requirements.

Plagiarism includes but is not limited to submitting, to satisfy an academic requirement, any document that has been copied in whole or part from another individual’s work without identifying that individual; neglecting to identify as a quotation a documented idea that has not been assimilated into the student’s language and style, or paraphrasing a passage so closely that the reader is misled as to the source; submitting the same written or oral material in more than one course without obtaining authorization from the instructors involved; or dry-labbing, which includes (a) obtaining and using experimental data from other students without the express consent of the instructor, (b) utilizing experimental data and laboratory write-ups from other sections of the course or from previous terms when the course was conducted, and (c) fabricating data to fit the expected results.

Student Conduct
(UHMC, 2015, Student Conduct, p. 83, para. 4)

The UH Maui College has a Student Conduct Code which defines expected conduct for students and specifies those acts subject to University sanctions. Students should familiarize themselves with the Student Conduct Code, since upon enrollment at UH Maui College, students have placed themselves under the policies and regulations of the University and its duly constituted bodies.

The disciplinary authority is exercised through the Student Conduct Committee. The Committee has developed procedures for hearing allegations of misconduct.

Student Conduct Code information is available at: maui.hawaii.edu/services-for-students/, see “Student Rights and Responsibilities.”
