Any behaviour that undermines the University's ability to evaluate fairly students' academic achievements, or any behaviour that a student knew, or reasonably ought to have known, could gain them or others unearned academic advantage or benefit, counts as academic misconduct (Policy 60: Academic Integrity). The range of penalties include a grade reduction, up to and including a zero on the exam, an “F” in the course and/or suspension/withdrawal/expulsion from the University. All findings of academic misconduct will include a Disciplinary Notation on your internal academic record. You are responsible for being familiar with the Academic Integrity Policy. For more information, please visit the Academic Integrity Office website.
Guidelines for proper conduct in exams, and penalties for misconduct are listed in the Final Examination Policy, Academic Integrity Policy, and the Student Code of Non-Academic Conduct. It is your responsibility to read and understand them. See below for specific exam procedures.
