At West Georgia, students are expected to achieve and maintain the highest standards of academic honesty and excellence. Not only does academic honesty preserve the integrity of both the student and the institution, but it is also essential in gaining a true education. The West Georgia student, therefore, pledges not to lie, cheat, plagiarize, or steal in the pursuit of his or her studies and is encouraged to report those who do. See the
UWG Connection and Student Handbook, www.westga.edu/~handbook, Appendix E, Procedure for Appeals of Grade Determination and Academic Dishonesty.
