At the University of Oklahoma, students are “admonished” for cheating, if it doesn’t involve a major paper or final. The policy was supposed the streamline academic misconduct cases, but now students want due process rights for admonitions too.
The admonition policy was started this semester to keep smaller academic misconduct cases between the professor and the student, (Assistant Provost Gregory) Heiser said. Admonition cases apply to plagiarism that does not involve semester-long assignments and examinations, a master’s thesis or a doctoral dissertation. The admonition will not go on a student’s record like misconduct charges.
Expect more cheating at Oklahoma.
