The Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters protects academic integrity at the University. Some examples of offences that are sanctioned under the Code include:
Instructor resources - UTSC Library Guides: Academic Integrity
Procedures provided under the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters
NB: If the student has not responded to your request for a meeting by the time grades in the course are due, don’t wait. State that you have not met with the student.
When the case is resolved and a sanction is imposed you will receive a letter specifying the sanction along with an Amended Marks form. This form is the only means that you can use to report an amended grade for an academic offence. Fill out the form, have your Chair or Director sign it and send it as instructed on the form to the Registrar.
What are some things I can do to deter this behaviour in the future?
Students are responsible for the decisions they make. However, clarifying grey areas is always helpful for students. Clear, specific statements in syllabi, assignment and exam instructions, and class slides about what is and is not allowed in coursework are important. The Centre for Teaching Support and Innovation and the Centre for Teaching and Learning (UTSC) have many supports available for instructors for such statements and other pedagogical practices that can deter future offences.
