The following is an excerpt of the College Academic Policy (JFSC Policy Directive 2: Joint Forces Staff College Student Handbook. April 2008.) about academic integrity:

Statement of Policy: This policy is applicable to all faculty, staff, and students of the Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC). JFSC has zero tolerance for academic dishonesty. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, obtaining or giving aid on an examination, having unauthorized prior knowledge of an examination; unauthorized collaboration; multiple submissions; and plagiarism.

Explanation of Academic Dishonesty

Cheating on Examinations

(1) Definition. Cheating is using or attempting to use materials, information, notes, study aids, or other assistance in any type of examination or evaluation which have not been authorized by the instructor.

(2) Clarification

(a) Students completing any type of examination or evaluation are prohibited from looking at another students materials and from using external aids of any sort (e.g., books, notes, electronic devices, and conversation with others) unless the instructor has indicated specifically in advance that this will be allowed.

(b) Students may not take examinations or evaluations in the place of other persons. Students may not allow other persons to take examinations or evaluations in their places.

(c) Students may not acquire unauthorized information about an examination or evaluation and may not use any such information improperly acquired by others.


(1) Definition. Complicity is assisting or attempting to assist another person in any act of academic dishonesty.

(2) Clarification

(a) Students are encouraged to collaborate extensively in preparing for examinations; however, once an examination begins, students may not allow others to copy their work.

(b) Students may not assist other students in acts of academic dishonesty by providing material of any kind that one may have reason to believe will be misrepresented to an instructor or other college official.

(c) Students may not provide substantive information about test questions or the material to be tested before a scheduled examination unless they have been specifically authorized to do so by the course instructor.

Disenrollment Policies and Procedures

Academic Disenrollment

A student identified as having continued academic difficulties or other issues impacting their continued engagement in academics shall be considered for academic disenrollment. Due to the unique nature of JFSCs non-resident program, this policy varies for resident and non-resident students.

(2) Non-resident programs.

Non-resident programs

(a) Students may be disenrolled for nonparticipation or may request disenrollment for operational, personal, or medical reasons.

(b) The [Director], JCDES, with input from the [Program Manager, SEJPME Course], shall determine if the student, upon disenrollment, shall remain eligible for re-enrollment in a later class. Typically, students who are disenrolled for failure to participate shall not be eligible to reenroll in the course; however, each decision shall be made on a case-by-case basis.

Disciplinary Disenrollment of Students

(1) Any person having knowledge of commission of an offense punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), federal and/or civil law is to forward a written statement of the circumstances of the offense to the students Senior Service Representative (SSR) or to Dean of Academic Affairs (DAA) for civilian and international students. A copy of the report is given to the Chief of Staff (COS), DAA, appropriate School Director, and SC or Dept C, STL for comment.

(2) The COS designates an officer to investigate the charges who then forwards a recommendation to the Commandant (CMDT) for disposition.

(3) When the CMDT directs disenrollment, Registrar and Personnel Administration Department (RPAD) is notified and initiates academic evaluation reports as required and advises the sponsoring Service of disenrollment.

NOTE: Student Access and Online Activity - The learning management system (LMS) that is used to deliver SEJPME Course learning materials and tests track and record student activity while online. This includes but is not limited to enrollment or disenrollment and completion dates, length of time in learning modules and time on tests. This and other tracked and recorded information may be used as evidence of any suspected violations of the College Academic Policy and in disciplinary actions taken either by JFSC or students parent organizations.
