Integrity for students

It is your responsibility

Academic Integrity (AI) is taken very seriously and it is your responsibility as a student to know, understand, and follow the University of Waterloo policies. Violations can have serious consequences, affecting your grades, academic standing, and future career.

Ignorance is not an excuse. Check out the following: Fact Sheet for Undergraduate Students (PDF) , AI brochure  (PDF), and complete the Undergraduate AI tutorial to be sure you have all the knowledge you need. Help with citation styles is also available on the Library website.

You are responsible for reporting instances of academic dishonesty that you may witness. Every member of the University of Waterloo community must demonstrate their commitment to honesty, trust, and fairness by ensuring they do all they can to create a level playing field. If you are aware of misconduct, talk to your professor, academic advisor, or the Office of Academic Integrity about the situation.
