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:

  1. Plagiarism, either by presenting the work of another person as your own or by providing insufficient documentation of your sources.
  2. Cheating, by copying the work of another student or allowing your work to be copied by another student without acknowledgement, by making use of unauthorized written or electronic aids during an examination, or by making false claims in order to gain concessions from a professor.
  3. Falsifying research, results of projects, completion of assignments, citations in a formal paper, or class/chapel attendance for you or another student.
  4. Submitting the same work for multiple assignments or courses without the knowledge or consent of the professor.
  5. Intentionally interfering with the successful completion of another student's work.

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:

  1. Inspection of education records by a student.
  2. The opportunity through a hearing for a student to challenge the contents of the records.
  3. The written permission, with certain exceptions, of the student for release of the education records.
  4. Maintenance of a record of individuals who, in certain situations, inspect the file.
  5. The right to file a complaint with the Family Policy Compliance Office.

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.
