Academic Honesty and Plagiarism
Honesty and fairness are considered fundamental to the university's mission, and, as a result, all those who violate those
principles are dealt with as if they were damaging the integrity of the university itself. When students are suspected of
cheating or a similar academic offence, they are typically surprised at how formally and seriously the matter is dealt with
-- and how severe the consequences can be if it is determined that cheating did occur. The University of Toronto treats
cases of cheating and plagiarism very seriously. Please take the time to review the Academic Integrity website:
Common trends in academic offences:
Recycling work - "double-dipping"
Resubmitting of altered work for re-grading
Electronic devices (cell phones) or any unauthorized aids
Altering medical certificates and UofT documents
From the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters: “It shall be an offence for a student to knowingly: represent as one's
own any idea or expression of an idea or work of another in any academic examination or term test or in connection
with any other form of academic work, i.e. to commit plagiarism. Wherever in the Code an offence is described as
depending on "knowing”, the offence shall likewise be deemed to have been committed if the person ought reasonably
to have known.” All students must refer to this website to obtain information on what constitutes plagiarism.
If questions arise after reading the material on the website, consult your instructor. Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
Students requiring academic accommodations for learning, physical, sensory, or mental health disabilities or medical
conditions should contact the AccessAbility Office (2037B Davis Building), 905-828-3847.

any attempt to create an intimidating or hostile environment. It is our collective responsibility to create a space that is
