Saint Charles Seminary's Integrity Policy
Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary presumes that all seminarians come to Saint Charles with a desire to embrace all aspects of formation including the intellectual component. They take upon themselves the desire to grow in wisdom and knowledge of the faith and its development. As they enter into the realm of academic life they seek to fulfill all the requirements with honesty and seek excellence in their work.
Accordingly the policy of the Theology Division is as follows: “An important sign of one’s sincerity in committing his life to the service of the Lord and of the Church is the seminarian’s observance of total honesty in the pursuit of his formal studies. No instance of plagiarism, cheating, or falsification of research work, examinations or academic records will be tolerated and will make the seminarian liable to dismissal.”
