he/she will receive an "F" for that work. A second occurrence
will mean a failure in the course.

or similar situation, the student will fail the course. A second
occurrence will result in a recommendation to the Department Head

of this academic honesty policy in a MIE course, has the option
to file a grievance according to the grievance procedure as published
