       A number of scholarships are made by the College and by the private donors who contribute to the
       scholarships program. These awards are based on a person’s scholastic record and activity involvement.
       You may fill out the general scholarship application that can be obtained from the Admissions Office
       or on Iowa Central’s website. Please watch your Iowa Central e-mail for the announcement pertaining
       to available Foundation scholarships. Students are awarded scholarships based on past achievements;
       however, scholarships are renewed for the next term based on stipulations stated on the scholarship
       contract.  Scholarships can be made unavailable to students who do not complete the stated agreement.

       Scholastic Dishonesty
       Iowa Central Community College may initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of
       scholastic dishonesty. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating and plagiarizing.
       Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s words as one’s own.  Whether in writing or in speaking.
       Cheating and plagiarism, whether intentional or accidental, are serious offenses.
       Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated in any course. Plagiarism and other forms of cheating are
       examples of such dishonesty and will result in serious consequences.
       One is plagiarizing if one:
         -  Uses direct quotes without quotation marks and textual citation of the material.
         -  Paraphrases without crediting the source.
         -  Presents another’s ideas as your own without citing the source.
         -  Submits material written by someone else as your own (this includes purchasing or borrowing a paper).
         -  Submits a paper or assignment for which one has received so much help that the writing is
           significantly different from one’s own.
       One is cheating if one:
         -  Copies someone else’s exam or homework.
         -  Purposefully allows another student to copy your work or submit work that you have written as
           his/her own.
         -  Refers to a text, notes or other materials during an exam without authorization to do so.
         -  Submits a paper or assignment for which you have received so much help that the writing is
           significantly different from your own.
         -  Passes test answers to another student during or before a test.
       Disciplinary Action by the Instructor
       An instructor who suspects a student of scholastic dishonesty will inform the student of the allegation
       as soon as possible. It is up to the instructor to determine the disciplinary action to be taken, which
       could include giving the student a zero for the assignment, reducing the student’s grade for the
       course, assigning an “F” for the course, or other action. The instructor will send a written report of
       the incident to the student, the appropriate department chair and the Vice President of Instruction.
       If the instructor concludes that the incident merits additional disciplinary action (such as suspension
       or expulsion), he/she will send a written report of the case to the Vice President of Instruction for
       recommended additional disciplinary action.
