Academic integrity

The Faculty of Fine Arts values academic integrity: honesty, responsibility and fairness in all aspects of academic life.

Instructors, students and administrators are expected to be honest and responsible in their academic conduct and fair in their assessment of academic matters. 

What is academic integrity?

Academic integrity means that every student must be honest and accurate in their work. This means that there are rules and regulations to follow when presenting work as your own. These are described in detail in the Academic Code of Conduct.  

Here is a concise and clear guide to Academic Integrity at Concordia.

Most common offences

The Academic Integrity section of the Conduct hub offers more examples of offences under the Code of Conduct, details on the disciplinary process, possible consequences of a charge, as well as resources to prevent academic misconduct.

Academic misconduct charge

If a course instructor suspects a student of plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct in exams or in their coursework, they may file an incident report which will lead to an investigation by the Faculty's code administrator who interviews the student before making a decision. Sanctions can range from a reprimand or grade reduction to expulsion from the university.
