Ensuring academic integrity is a major priority of the Department. We do not tolerate academic dishonesty at all among students. By ‘academic dishonesty’, we mean spying on an exam; doing a quiz or an exam for a friend; plagiarizing the works of others, and committing any act defined as ‘academic dishonesty’ by the University. The Department frowns heavily on plagiarism and will penalize a student who plagiarizes in accordance with University policies. Students are challenged to avoid plagiarism by appropriately citing sources in line with the American Psychological Association (APA) style. Instructors shall include in their course syllabi as a reminder this policy statement on academic integrity and plagiarism.
