Process for Academic Integrity Code of Conduct Policies

Elon faculty members who believe a student or students may have violated academic integrity policies will schedule an appointment with the student(s) (either individually or as a group, to be determined by the professor). During the initial meeting with the student, the instructor explains the basis of the academic integrity policy concerns and shares any supporting information. The purpose of this meeting is to identify the specific potential policy violated, make sure the student understands the reason for believing the student may have violated the academic integrity policy, the student’s rights and responsibilities in the process, and the possible outcomes for responsibility. This initial meeting is not for the student to challenge the potential policy violations or attempt to negotiate outcomes. The student signs a form (or indicates in writing) indicating that they do or do not accept responsibility for the violation.

If the student accepts responsibility, the instructor assigns any course related outcomes and forwards the paperwork to the associate provost for academic excellence and operations (or designee) who assigns institutional outcomes. If the student denies any misconduct, the case is referred to the Elon Honor Board and the associate provost or designee convenes a Honor board hearing (See referral and procedures for a Honor Board)
