MVCC Statement on ChatGPT and Generative AI
All students are expected to maintain academic integrity in their academic work and honesty in all dealings with the College. A student who cheats, plagiarizes, or furnishes false, misleading information to the College violates the academic integrity code of conduct.
With an increase in the availability of online writing tools, students should be aware that submitting work created by AI software could be considered plagiarism unless an instructor has pre-approved its use.
