Beginning February 24, instructors on the Twin Cities campus will receive an email once a week if a student has withdrawn from his or her course(s). The email asks the instructor to review the class list to see which student has withdrawn and if appropriate, report suspicions or evidence of academic dishonesty to the Office for Student Conduct and Academic Integrity (OSCAI).
The University Grades and Transcript Policy states: "If the instructor determines that a grade of F or N for the course should be awarded to a student because of scholastic dishonesty, the student cannot withdraw to avoid the F or N." Instructors will receive one email for each course they teach in which a student has withdrawn. The Senate Student Integrity Committee conceived of this notification to promote compliance with this policy.
Questions should be directed to OSCAI.
