Course instructors are responsible for “assembling evidence” and making an “initial determination” of whether or not cheating, duplicate submission, or plagiarism has occurred. If the instructor believes that a student is in violation of RIT’s policy, he or she is expected to follow the procedures outlined in RIT’s Governance Policy, Section D08.0: Student Academic Integrity Policy.
For information on how to begin assembling evidence for suspected violations, please see the following pages on this site:
