Academic integrity

Article 1 of the Academic Code of Conduct states that:

"The integrity of University academic life and of the degrees, diplomas and certificates the University confers is dependent upon the honesty and soundness of the instructor-student learning relationship and, in particular, that of the evaluation process. Therefore, for their part, all students are expected to be honest in all of their academic endeavours and relationships with the University."

Always acknowledge the use of another person's ideas, whether the information is quoted directly, paraphrased, or summarized. The correct procedure for referencing is described in most style manuals. For more information, see the citation style sheets and guides on avoiding plagiarism at the Concordia University Library website.

If you commit an academic offense, an incident report will be filed with the Faculty of Arts and Science Code Administrator.
