Academic Integrity Policy
As a training center for Christian men and women who are preparing for ministry, Boise Bible College expects students to value honesty and integrity in their lives and to put into practice these vital character traits throughout the education process.
Academic dishonesty is any practice by which a student knowingly and intentionally attempts to distort the truth about his or her own academic performance or that of another student. Examples include but are not limited to:
If you have questions about the acceptability of a practice, you should always consult your professor before proceeding.
Professors have the authority to discipline students for academic dishonesty by requiring the student to redo either the original or a substitute assignment or test (possibly for only partial credit), by failing the assignment or test, or by failing the student in the course. For repeat or flagrant violations, the student may be placed on academic probation or suspended by the Director of Enrollment Services. Students have the right to appeal any disciplinary action.
Access to Educational Records
On November 19, 1974, Public Law 93-380, entitled The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), became effective. The law provides for:
The college supports the intent of the law and, to the best of its ability, will provide the rights and privileges specified by the law.
To safeguard student records, the College cannot release transcripts to third parties unless the request is made in writing and signed by the student.
