Integrity of Scholarship
The principles of truth and honesty are recognized as absolutely essential in every community of learning. It is expected that these principles will be scrupulously followed in all academic endeavors at Patrick Henry College, including, but not limited to, the preparation of all papers and reports and the taking of examinations. All academic work must be done by the student without unauthorized aid. Any compromise of truth or honesty, including, but not limited to, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, violation of guidelines under which the work is to be done, fabrication of data, unauthorized use of computer data, submission of a paper twice for the same course, submission of the same paper for multiple courses, and excessive revision by someone other than the student, may be considered sufficient grounds for suspension or expulsion from the College. Students may be given a grade of "XF" if it is determined that they have plagiarized or cheated in a course. The "XF" on a transcript indicates that a student violated integrity of scholarship policies. Students who successfully retake a course for which they have received an "XF" will have the "X" removed from their transcripts although the "F" will remain. The "XF" (or "F") and the grade earned in the retaken course will be used to calculate the grade point average.
At the end of any given semester, all degree-seeking students must meet the minimum term grade point average of 2.0. Any student who fails to attain the required 2.0 GPA is placed on academic probation. Students earning a grade point average of 2.0 or above in a subsequent term will be removed from academic probation. Students on academic probation may be placed on academic suspension unless they achieve the minimum term grade point average of 2.0 in the following term.
Degree-seeking students who earn a GPA below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters may be placed on academic suspension.
Student Affairs Discipline
If a student is dismissed for disciplinary reasons related to Student Life, grades of "W" will be recorded on the transcript for course in which the student is enrolled.
