Academic Integrity Policy

Responsibility and integrity are values Illinois Eastern Community Colleges (IECC) considers essential in achieving its mission to provide exceptional education. As such, IECC expects students to demonstrate the  highest standards of academic integrity. Students are expected to be honest in their academic endeavors and responsible for their own work.  

Faculty and academic support service staff will take reasonable precautions to prevent the opportunity for academic dishonesty and are authorized to establish specific guidelines consistent with this policy in order to communicate expectations. IECC’s Student Code of Conduct includes examples of prohibited conduct; course syllabi may additionally be used to alert students to specific violations. Disciplinary actions and the appeal process follow the protocol outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
