uWaterloo offers two tutorials for students to recognize and avoid academic misconduct such as cheating, plagiarism, and unauthorized collaboration:
International students should view our International Students and Academic Integrity video.
We also encourage you to view the Introduction to Policy 71 video.
The Registrar's Office has details on examination regulations, final exams and what NOT to do in the PAC during exams.
For course-specific questions about academic integrity, please consult your instructor.
For department- or field-specific questions about academic integrity, please consult your Associate Dean.
For faculty and instructors:
Please refer to the Student Discipline document. We also strongly recommend that you review the information given to students.
For researchers, graduate students and instructors:
Both academic integrity and research integrity adhere to the 5 values of integrity (honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility), EXCEPT research additionally "has its own externally imposed reporting and investigational obligations", and ethics approval must be obtained before research can begin with human subjects. For further information please review the FAQ on Research Integrity, the Integrity in Research Administrative Guidelines or visit the Office of Research Ethics (ORE).
