The Statement of Resolution consists of two sections:
Section A, provides documentation of a student being found not to have engaged in an act of academic misconduct
Section B, which details the sanctions imposed if it is found that a student has engaged in academic misconduct.
If the student accepts the allegation academic misconduct, the instructor has the authority to impose any of the following sanctions:
Issue a written warning
Allow the student to repeat or resubmit academic work, telling the student what grade penalty, if any, will be assessed
Assign a grade penalty on an assignment(s)
Submit a recalculated grade for the course
Submit a failing grade for the course
Note that the J component of the EJ, FJ, or UJ assigned for academic misconduct will be recorded on the student’s “internal” audit but will not appear on the student’s official transcript, and quality points will be averaged, if applicable, even if the student repeats the course. In addition, students found to have engaged in academic misconduct may be required to complete an academic misconduct educational program. If the student accepts responsibility for engaging in academic misconduct and accepts the suggested sanctions, a Statement of Resolution form must be completed by the instructor, signed by the parties noted on the form, and filed in the Academic Standards Office, the student’s major department office, and the department office of the course in which the academic misconduct occurred.
If the student feels he/she has not engaged in an act of academic misconduct or disputes instructor's sanction, then the student has the right to engage in the formal procedure outlined in the Academic Misconduct policy.
If the student withdraws from a course while academic misconduct allegations are being addressed, the student will receive a "W" at the time of withdrawal. If it is substantiated through the academic misconduct due process procedure that the student engaged in academic misconduct during the course, the grade will be converted to a "WJ." The "J" component of the grade will be recorded on the student's "internal" audit but will not appear on the student's official transcript. If the charges are not substantiated, the grade will remain a "W."
