Ethics, Plagiarizing, & Cheating



The process of teaching and learning online represents an advanced stage in human cognitive growth and development on all levels, including ethics and honesty.


Whether in the face-to-face classroom setting or online, the processes of  teaching and learning assume and require the observation of the highest standards of ethics and honesty.


It follows that plagiarizing and cheating in any way are prohibited and will not be tolerated. 


Violators will be dealt with according to relevant DSC policies and regulations.
