While most students try to work honestly, many find it difficult to identify where the line is drawn between academic integrity and academic misconduct. The list below are real examples of actions that got students into trouble under Policy 71 - Student Discipline. Click on the following links to get more information about how to avoid academic misconduct.

These are guidelines to help students understand general expectations for working with integrity, but the expectations may vary. Always read your instructor's guidelines carefully, including the course outline, assignment and test instructions, and LEARN announcements.

Note: the typical penalties for a first offence under Policy 71 range from zero on the assignment plus an additional 5% final grade reduction to failure in the course plus a suspension. In addition, all findings of guilt include disciplinary probation.
