IMPORTANT information
 and guidelines

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY •Integrity in all academic endeavors is vital as an expression of the Christian life. It is required that District Training Center students will not participate in cheating, plagiarism*, or other forms of academic dishonesty nor encourage or condone such behavior by permitting it and/or allowing it to go unreported. •All assignments must be the student's original work for the course in which the material is submitted. When a student utilizes work that is not his/her own, proper credit must be given to the source of the information. Academic dishonesty is a serious violation of morality, and academic integrity. •The minimum penalty for academic dishonesty will be the failure of the assignment. More stringent measures may include failure of the course, communicating the infraction to the district Credentials Board & who supervises the student in ministry. *Plagiarism is using another's words or ideas as one's own work without properly crediting the original source.
