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