What are the range of consequences for plagiarism?
According to the Baker College student handbook:
There are four possible consequences for violating Baker College’s Honor Code (plagiarism):
1. Failure of the assignment
2. Failure of the course*
3. Expulsion from Baker College
4. Rescinding a certificate or degree
In cases involving violation of the honor code, determination of the grade and the student's status in the course are left solely to the discretion of the instructor. The faculty may seek guidance from administrators. The instructor will report the incident to the College's administration to establish, investigate, or determine potential patterns of dishonesty.
*A student is prohibited from withdrawing from a course in which an F grade is received due to a violation of the honor code.
