Academic Honesty

San Juan College believes that the basis for personal and academic development is honesty. Personal commitment, honest work, and honest achievement are necessary characteristics for an educated person. Dishonesty is unacceptable.

Instances of academic dishonesty of any kind--using unauthorized materials, sharing information with another examinee, using technology inappropriately, misrepresenting oneself as someone else, or any other method--will not be tolerated.  Examinees found to be cheating while testing in the SJC Testing Center will be stopped and the exam and any notes or other materials being used will be collected.  The exam will be marked as Invalid, and the exam and any materials being used will be housed in the SJC Testing Center.
