Peer-to-Peer File Sharing

Jamestown Business College also recognizes copying student work whether online or with someone you know as an infringement of the peer-to-peer file sharing policy (i.e.: cheating, plagiarism). In a digital age nothing is anonymous. You must be aware that your actions are traceable and may result in a significant financial penalty, as well as dismissal from JBC.
Failure to adhere to this policy may result in civil and criminal liabilities as outlined in the Federal Student Aid Handbook.
