MINIMUM FACULTY CREDENTIALS:

A qualified faculty member in mathematics is one who has an earned master's or higher degree,
from a regionally accredited institution, in mathematics; or a master's degree with 18 graduate
semester credit hours in mathematics-related courses.

The College is committed to academic integrity in all its practices. The faculty value
intellectual integrity and a high standard of academic conduct. Activities that violate
academic integrity undermine the quality and diminish the value of educational
achievement.

Cheating on papers, tests or other academic works is a violation of College rules. No
student shall engage in behavior that, in the judgment of the instructor of the class, may
be construed as cheating. This may include, but is not limited to, plagiarism or other
forms of academic dishonesty such as the acquisition without permission of tests or other
academic materials and/or distribution of these materials and other academic work. This
includes students who aid and abet as well as those who attempt such behavior.
