Records relating to academic dishonesty will be maintained by the associate dean of the student’s assigned college to promote consistency of penalties for academic dishonesty and to ensure appropriate action against repeat offenders.
In order to ensure that minor and nonrecurring infractions do not negatively impact a student’s career beyond Marquette University, a student may petition the associate dean of his or her academic college to have relevant academic disciplinary records expunged after the student graduates or leaves the university. The associate dean has sole authority to consider and grant or deny such petitions.
The university will release a student’s disciplinary records to potential employers, governmental agencies, other educational institutions or other organizations or individuals only if authorized to do so by the student in question or if compelled by law.
As an institution of higher education, love of truth is at the center of the university's enterprise, and academic honesty, in all its forms, is an explicit value of the university.
