Academic Honesty and Standards

Senate policy in UBC Calendar: Academic Honesty and Standards

All UBC students are expected to behave as honest and responsible members of an academic community. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action.

  • Make sure you know the standards for academic honesty
  • Be aware that standards at UBC may be different from those at other institutions
  • Consult with your instructor or supervisor if you are unsure of the standard of academic honesty

Students who are under investigation for possible academic dishonesty may be placed on academic hold until the President has decided on a course of action. Students on academic hold are blocked from all activity in the Student Service Centre.
