Resources for SUCCESS


Academic Honesty
Statement:
Cheating, plagiarism (submitting another
persons material as ones own), or doing
work for another person who will receive
academic credit is impermissible. This
includes the use of unauthorized books,
notebooks, or other sources in order to
secure or give help during an examination,
the unauthorized copying of examinations,
assignments, reports, or term papers, or the
presentation of unacknowledged material as
if it were the students own work.
Disciplinary action may be taken beyond the
academic discipline administered by the
faculty member who teaches the course in
which the cheating took place.

Civility Statement:
Students are expected to interact with lab
instructors and peers in a respectful manner
that enhances the learning environment.
Instructors may require a student who
deviates from this expectation to leave the
classroom learning environment for that
particular class session and may begin the
university disciplinary process for continued
disruptive behavior.
Tarleton State University holds high
expectations for students to assume
responsibility for their individual learning and
to practice the core value of civility so that all
students enjoy the best learning
environment possible.

ADA Statement
If you have or believe you have a disability,
you may wish to self-identify. You can do so
by providing documentation to the office of
the Academic Dean of the Tarleton
University System Center Central Texas or
to the Disability Services Director on the
Stephenville campus.

Computer Usage Policy


The University reserves the right to limit,
restrict or deny access to its technology
resources, as well as to take disciplinary
and/or legal action against anyone in
violation of these regulations or applicable
law. Use the following link to view the
