Relationship to Non-Academic Misconduct Policy
It is possible that a student will commit one act allegedly violating more than one university policy. If a student has allegedly violated the academic honesty policy and other university policies by the same act, the Office of Academic Honesty shall proceed to handle the academic matter under this policy.
The university recognizes the possibility that criminal prosecution or a civil case in a court of law (or both) may arise out of the same facts which are the subject of an academic dishonesty proceeding under this policy. The start of any such proceeding shall not prevent or delay proceeding under this policy. The imposition of a consequence or the award of damages or other relief in any such proceeding shall not prevent or delay the imposition of a consequence under this policy.
