Capilano’s Cheating and Plagiarism Policy (S1999-01) is designed to promote an atmosphere of academic integrity on campus
and respond appropriately to incidents of cheating and plagiarism.
Though many instructors provide resources
and information on cheating and plagiarism, the responsibility lies with
students to ensure that they understand these terms and know how to avoid them.
The policy defines them as follows:
Cheating - an act of deceit, fraud, distortion of
the truth, or improper use of another person's effort to obtain an academic
Plagiarism - the presentation of another person's or source's words
and/or ideas as if they were one’s own. It ranges from an
entire assignment which is not the student's own work to specific passages
within an assignment taken from a source without appropriate acknowledgement.
First offences that are not severe in
nature are handled by instructors. If your instructor finds that you have
plagiarized or cheated on a graded assessment, they sanction you as follows:
In the event that you are sanctioned by
an instructor, a record will be created in the Office of Student Affairs and
held for a period of 5 years.
In the event that previous incidents
are identified after you have been sanctioned by an instructor, or the incident
in question is deemed to be particularly severe, an investigation will be
launched by the Office of Student Affairs. The outcome of such investigations may
include sanctions such as:
you are the respondent in a Student Affairs investigation, we recommend
visiting Information For Respondents.
