Cheating Policy for San Diego State University
Cheating and plagiarism are serious violations of academic standards and, if they occur in connection with an academic program at SDSU, may warrant academic sanctions (such as grade modification by the instructor) as well as disciplinary sanctions by the administration (such as probation, suspension, or expulsion, including an educational component such as an interactive learning program and/or a reflective paper). In order to coordinate information to permit appropriate disciplinary action for first-time and repeat offenders, Executive Order 1006 requires faculty members to file an academic dishonesty report describing violations with the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities. Refer to Policy File for additional details (Academics: Cheating and Plagiarism), or see Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities-Mission

The top court ruled that 17-year old Cassandra pictured above, can be forced to undergo chemo treatment. Cassandra was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in September, she made the decision to skip out on her prescribed treatment. A decision which was supported by her mother. She said "she did not want such toxic and harmful drugs in her body' and rather try alternative treatments. According to court summary after Cassandra underwent two chemotherapy treatments in November, she then ran away from home and refused to continue treatments. She was then taken away from her mother and placed in state custody so they could make medical decisions for her.
