Academic Honesty and Integrity
Academic honesty requires that persons do not falsely claim credit for the ideas, writing or other
intellectual property of others, either by presenting such works as their own or through impersonation.
Similarly, academic honesty requires that persons do not cheat (attempt to gain an improper advantage
in an academic evaluation), nor attempt or actually alter, suppress, falsify or fabricate any research
data or results, official academic record, application or document. Finally, academic honesty requires
that persons do not aid or abet others to commit an offence of academic dishonesty, including
intentional acts to disrupt academic activities.
Suspected breaches of academic honesty will be investigated and charges shall be laid if reasonable
and probable grounds exist.

These and any other unauthorized material must be placed under the student’s chair and
should not be accessed at any point during the exam. Failure to comply with directive may be
considered a break of academic honesty.
