5. Make the penalties clear. If aninstitutional policy exists,quote it in your syllabus. If you have your own policy, specify thepenaltiesinvolved. For example, "Cheating on a paper will result in an F on thatpaper with no possibility of a makeup. A second act of cheating willresultin an F in the course regardless of the student's gradeotherwise." Ifyou teach at a university where the penalty for plagiarism is dismissalfrom the university or being reported to the Academic Dean or Dean ofStudents,you should make that clear as well. Even the penalties can bepresentedin a positive light. Penalties exist to reassure honeststudentsthat their efforts are respected and valued, so much so that those whowould escape the work by fakery will be punished substantially. Note:There are always a few students who will be caught plagiarizing andthen claim that no one cared or told them. When you point to thesection in your syllabus, they will say, "I thought it was a genericsyllabus so I didn't read it." The better idea, then, is to read theappropriate places from the syllabus to the class at the first meeting.
4. Require process steps for the paper. Seta series ofdue dates throughout the term for the various steps of the researchpaperprocess: topic or problem, preliminary bibliography, prospectus,researchmaterial (annotated photocopies of articles, for example), outline,roughdraft, final annotated bibliography, final draft. Some of these partscanbe reverse engineered by the determined cheater, but most studentsshouldrealize that doing the assignment honestly is easier than thealternative.
Marquette defines academic censure in one of three categories: Academic Probation (two types): College Probation and Reinstated on Probation; Academic Dismissal (two types): Required to Withdraw for Academic Reasons and Required to Withdraw for Academic Misconduct; and the College Academic Alert. These censure statuses are maintained permanently on the student’s academic record; however, only three appear permanently on Marquette University's official transcript as follows:

Online courses at Marquette University are designed to be highly interactive and collaborative, as authentic learning takes place within a social context. To help ensure an effective learning experience, all students in online courses are expected to participate on a regular basis. Participation is defined as “submitting required work as assigned; being an active contributor and responder to fellow students and the instructor in a timely basis, as set forth by online discussion guidelines in each course.” Failure to participate may be counted toward the number of absences allowed before a WA is assigned as described above.
At the time of registration, the repeat process in CheckMarq will allow the repeat of a course only once, unless the course is an unlimited repeat course (see #8 above). If a student needs to repeat a course, and that repeat is allowed under the policy, he/she must petition via the Request to Repeat a Course form located on the . This petition will be granted only if the request is in adherence to all the repeat criteria listed above.
Undergraduate degree-seeking students taking graduate level courses or cross-listed (5000 numbered) courses with the intention of transferring the credits to a graduate program must be graded according to Graduate School standards. Courses may not be graded using the CR/NC, S/U, SNC/UNC or AU (audit) unless that is the only grading option available for the course.
A 50 percent discount on tuition (only) is available to individuals 62 years of age and older taking undergraduate and graduate courses for credit and/or audit. This opportunity is offered to students who have the proper background and prerequisite of the course(s) in question.
Credit hours earned in a repeated course, other than #8 above, are only awarded once; however, all previous courses and grades remain on the student’s permanent academic record. The last grade earned is included in the cumulative GPA and the grade in the original course is excluded from the cumulative GPA calculation. The cumulative GPA is adjusted at the time the repeated course is graded. If a student receives an ADW, AU, AUA, W, WA or UW in the repeated course, the earlier grade will remain in the cumulative GPA. If a student repeats a course that was transferred to Marquette, only the Marquette course/grade will be reflected in the total credits earned and the cumulative GPA.
Students complete class online registration via Marquette's system. Students are responsible to ensure that their course schedule for each term/session accurately reflects the classes he/she plan to attend. Students may not attend classes in which they are not officially registered. Students must be registered by the deadline to register for each session, as outlined in the . The university does not retroactively register students for courses after the deadline to register for a session, or after a term is completed and reserves the right to deny credit to any student who fails to officially register in any course within these time limitations. All courses for which the student is registered are subject to tuition and in some cases, additional fees. The student is responsible for any payment due for all officially registered courses, regardless of attendance.
Only degree-seeking students may declare a minor. Students officially declare or change a minor after enrolling in the university by means of a Minor Request/Update form located on the . In order to receive appropriate advising and complete the requirements, the minor should be declared by the junior year. No minor may be added to a student’s record unless the student is degree-seeking and until a student has first declared a primary major in his/her college. In addition, a minor that is not in active status at the time of the declaration may not be added to a student’s record. Upon declaration of the minor, the student normally would be required to follow the current curriculum requirements in place at the time of the declaration, rather than those in effect at the time of admission. A minimum of 9 credits in the minor must be taken at Marquette.
Only degree-seeking students may declare a major. All degree-seeking students must have declared at least one major that is in the college from which the student is seeking the degree. This major associated with the degree is called the primary major. Students officially declare a major by means of the application for admission when they matriculate to the university in the Colleges of Communication, Education, Health Sciences and Nursing. Students in the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration and Engineering must officially declare a major before their junior year in the college and/or academic department that offers the desired major. All students who enter the university as an undeclared major, must officially declare a major within their college and/or academic department before their junior year. All students who wish to change a major, must do so by following the procedures in place in the college they currently reside and in the college and/or academic department that offers the desired major. No major may be declared that is not in active status at the time of the declaration. Upon declaration of the major, the student shall be required to follow the current curriculum requirements in place at the time of the declaration, rather than those in effect at the time of admission. A minimum of 15 credits in the major must be taken at Marquette.
