While instructors have a great deal of latitude in determining appropriate sanctions for academic integrity violations, the sanctions chart provides guidance on the appropriate range of sanctions for particular violations.
These sanctions can be recommended to the Office of Academic Integrity and, if necessary, to the university president for approval.
It is important to include all relevant information in a sanction letter to a student. These letters must be sent within 10 academic days of the consultative resolution meeting. To assist in this process, two template sanction letters are here for your use. One is designed for undergraduate students and one is designed for graduate students. Feel free to add detail and edit as you see fit to meet the needs of your specific case.
The sanction of failure in course or failure with transcript notation (either temporary or permanent), like all sanctions, will be reviewed by the Office of Academic Integrity. If warranted, the sanction of F in course (or F with notation) can override and replace the U.
Faculty will submit grade changes for students whose grades are altered by the following sanctions: revision of work, other appropriate sanction, and reduction in grade (even if it eventually results in an F). The Office of Academic Integrity will file grade changes directly with the Registrar’s Office relating to the following sanctions: failure in course, failure in course with a permanent notation of academic dishonesty on transcript, and failure in course, remediation required, temporary notation of academic dishonesty on the transcript.
