Academic Integrity Policy
CCCOnline students will demonstrate academic integrity in all courses. Students will complete coursework and participate in courses with honesty by the following:
- Never share login information (S-number),
- Always submit original coursework (do not plagiarize),
- Do not receive unauthorized assistance with coursework,
- Do give credit to others in coursework when appropriate to do so.
View the following tutorial for clarification of the policy, violation procedures, case studies and other resources: Academic Integrity Tutorial.
One way a student violates the Academic Integrity Policy is by committing an act of plagiarism. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to:
- copying, writing, or presenting another person’s or entity’s information, ideas, graphics or phrasing without properly acknowledging the true source via appropriate citation format. This includes using copied material from outside sources such as Chegg, CourseHero, Brainly, etc.
Students are required to use proper citations in the use of any outside resources. Please note that summarized and paraphrased ideas also need to be cited, not just direct quotations. For additional resources on the correct use of citations, please see http://ccconline.libguides.com/CiteSourceTutorial
CCCOnline expects all student work to be created by the student for each individual class as directed by the instructor. Please also note that CCCOnline does not allow self-plagiarism. Examples of self-plagiarism would include:
- Submitting work or parts of work for a course that was created by the student for another course or for a course the student is repeating.
Special note: unless otherwise indicated in a particular class, using any unauthorized source such as AI software (e.g., ChatGPT, Bing Chat, Google Bard, GrammarlyGO, and Jasper AI, etc.) to write or edit graded assignments is strictly prohibited under our academic integrity policy. Please make sure to check with your instructor if you are unsure of the policy in your course.
All coursework submitted for each course should be current, original and unique for that particular course.
