Cheating includes any attempt to defraud, deceive or mislead the instructor in arriving at
an honest grade assessment. Plagiarism is a form of cheating that involves presenting as
one’s own the ideas or work of another. Through course syllabi or course requirements,
students will be informed of the cheating and plagiarism policy. The policy has been
established by Georgia Perimeter College to insure due process in cases of cheating and
plagiarism (See Academic Affairs Policy 101).
The Dean’s List is an honor roll of high-achieving Georgia Perimeter students. At the end
of each semester, students who have achieved a grade-point average of 3.5 or better
while carrying an academic load of nine semester hours or more of courses numbered
1000 or higher will be placed on the Dean’s List.
