The Army will approve requests for accommodation of religious practices unless accommodation will have an adverse impact on unit readiness, individual readiness, unit cohesion, morale, good order, discipline, safety, and/or health.
Requests for religious accommodation generally fall into five major areas:
Wear and appearance of the uniform.

6. Academic Integrity. Texas A&M University -Central Texas values the integrity of the academic enterprise and strives for the highest standards of academic conduct. A&M-Central Texas expects its students, faculty, and staff to support the adherence to high standards of personal and scholarly conduct to preserve the honor and integrity of the creative community. Academic integrity is defined as a commitment to honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility. Any deviation by students from this expectation may result in a failing grade for the assignment and potentially a failing grade for the course. Academic misconduct is any act that improperly affects a true and honest evaluation of a student’s academic performance and includes, but is not limited to, cheating on an examination or other academic work, plagiarism and improper citation of sources, using another student’s work, collusion, and the abuse of resource materials. All academic misconduct concerns will be reported to the university’s Office of Student Conduct. Ignorance of the university’s standards and expectations is never an excuse to act with a lack of integrity. When in doubt on collaboration, citation, or any issue, please contact your instructor before taking a course of action. More information can be found at www.ct.tamus.edu/StudentConduct.
Texas A&M Central Texas College and the Department of Military Science expect all students to maintain high standards of personal and academic honesty and integrity.
Student integrity is especially critical, because the opportunities for dishonesty (i.e. social media, Wikipedia, websites, etc…) are more readily available and the trust level is higher. Exploiting either of these opportunities is a particularly blatant and offensive act.
By enrolling and remaining as a participant in any Military Science course, you affirm that you will adhere to the strictest standards of academic honesty and integrity.
You must maintain academic integrity and honesty at all times, on all course assignments: homework, projects and exams.
You must work independently when required, and work effectively in groups when that is required. You must use only the resources and assistance permitted on a given course activity. Students should pay special attention to whether assignments are designated as ‘individual’ or ‘group’, as well as what materials, resources and help from others are permitted. If in doubt, ask prior to doing the assignment.
When you are permitted to use materials and ideas that belong to others, you must state the source of the information in APA format. If you use outside help or materials when not allowed, you are in violation of this policy in the way of cheating. If allowed to use outside materials, but do not cite the sources of your information, you are in violation of this policy in the way of plagiarism.
Students who assist other students in violating this policy are considered equally in violation.
Academic penalties will be in agreement with each university (TSU, TAMU-CT, CTC, UMHB) and will include, but not limited to the following:
First offense, suspected: warning.
First offense, documentable: zero on the assignment in question &
reduction of one letter grade.
Second offense: failing grade in, AND dismissal from the course.
Third offense: recommendation to be withdrawn from the university.
