[UCN Academic Policy AC-01-19]Academic dishonesty is a very serious offence with serious consequences. It is up to eachstudent to understand what is meant by academic dishonesty.Academic dishonesty may take many forms, including:1. Using unauthorized materials in examinations or other evaluations;2. Plagiarism;3. Falsifying data or documents;4. Cheating or helping others cheat in any way;5. Any other acts which compromise the integrity of the evaluation process.Because plagiarism is a prevalent form of academic dishonesty, it is necessary that studentshave a clear understanding of the term. To plagiarize is to intentionally misrepresent with theintent to deceive. It will be considered plagiarism to take words or ideas of another person andpass them off as one’s own, including, but not limited to, essays, compositions, theses, creativewriting, reports, reviews, lab reports, projects, computer programs, experimental data,drawings, charts, plans, musical compositions, and works of art.The penalty for academic dishonesty may range from a grade of 0 for the assignment oroccurrence to suspension from the course. Instances of multiple infractions of academicdishonesty may result in suspension from the University College for a period of twelve monthsas of the date of the infraction.Any decision regarding academic dishonesty may be appealed.When in doubt about what constitutes plagiarism or other forms of academic dishonesty,students are encouraged to consult with their instructor. Students are also urged to familiarizethemselves with the appropriate section of the Academic Calendar on Academic Dishonesty. 4|Page
