UPDATES REGARDING

Policy 60: Academic Integrity 

Revisions implemented on September 1, 2015.

Highlights:

  • The AIO ensures that Policy 60 is carried out in a fair and transparent way (Policy 60, Procedures 1).
  • Affirmation of an educational approach to upholding academic integrity (Policy 60, Section 1).
  • Suspicions of academic misconduct must be registered on the *new* AIO Automated System (Policy 60, Procedure 2.2.2).
  • Introduction of the Designated Decision Maker (Policy 60, Section 3.4.1.2.).
  • The minimum penalty for a finding of academic misconduct for undergraduate or continuing education students is a grade reduction on any academic work, ranging in severity up to and including a grade of “zero” (0) on the work (Policy 60, Section 5.2).
  • The minimum penalty for a graduate student is a grade of “zero” (0) on the work (Policy 60, Section 5.2).
  • As a consequence of any determination of academic misconduct, a Disciplinary Notation (DN) will be placed on the student’s academic record (not transcript) (Policy 60, Section 5.1).
  • Additional requirements when suspicions concern graduate students (Policy 60, Sections 1.7; 2.7; 3.4.2).
  • New guidelines on Progressive Discipline and Repeated Misconduct (Policy 60, Section 5.4).
  • New and revised misconduct categories.  For example, a course-grade reduction greater than a grade of “zero” (0) on the work but less than an “F” in the course may be assigned.  This can only be applied to course components worth 10% or less, and any additional penalty cannot exceed 10% of the final course grade. Students must be given prior notice that such a penalty will be assigned (e.g. on the course outline, on the assignment handout, etc.) (Policy 60, 5.2.3; also see Procedures 3.1.2).
