Santa Rosa Junior College holds that its primary function is the development of intellectual curiosity, integrity, and accomplishment in an atmosphere that upholds the principles of academic freedom. All members of the academic community - student, faculty, staff, and administrator - must assume responsibility for providing an environment of the highest standards, characterized by a spirit of academic honesty and mutual respect. Because personal accountability is inherent in an academic community of integrity, this institution will not tolerate or ignore any form of academic dishonesty.
Academic dishonesty is regarded as any act of deception, benign or malicious in nature, in the completion of any academic exercise. Examples of academic dishonesty include cheating, plagiarism, impersonation, misrepresentation of idea or fact for the purpose of defrauding, use of unauthorized aids or devices, falsifying attendance records, violation of testing protocol, inappropriate course assignment collaboration, and any other acts that are prohibited by the instructor of record.
Faculty and students are partners in maintaining the college's academic integrity, in accordance with the guidelines delineated below:
These procedures focus on academic integrity in the context of the instructor-student relationship in the setting of an instructional program. Instructor obligations are further delineated in Policy 3.9 Instructor's Obligation to the Student. Appropriate student conduct is further delineated in The Student Conduct Code, which is part of SRJC Policy 8.2.8 and is published in the SRJC Catalog.
Santa Rosa Junior College is officially accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges
