You may download a copy of the Carson-Newman syllabus template below or create one of your own, unless you have been given a generic syllabus for your course by a lead instructor. If that is the case you need only to add your contact information to the course description on Edvance360.
Should you decide to create your own syllabus that it must include the following information:
Academic dishonesty may include, but is not limited to, the following: giving or receiving aid on tests; plagiarizing papers, assignments, book reviews; removing and/or copying test questions from office files. Incidents of suspected dishonesty will be addressed by the course instructor with the department chair and/or the school dean. After hearing the student and considering all the evidence, sanctions will be assess if guilt is determined. Academic dishonesty may result in sanctions including, but not limited to, an F and loss of credit for the course and, upon a recurrence or gross dishonesty, expulsion from the University. Any finding of academic dishonesty, and the sanction applied or recommended, shall be reported to the Provost who shall assess any sanction more severe than the loss of credit for the course. A student may appeal a finding and/or a sanction assessed to the Provost. Otherwise, no appeal shall be allowed. For updates and questions related to this area, contact the Provost’s Office.
