Academic Honesty

Academic honesty is extremely important and all forms of academic dishonesty, including cheating and plagiarism, are treated very seriously.

Carlton Trail College views the unauthorized use of material or information by students during any evaluative procedure as a serious offence, incompatible with the high standards of personal integrity and responsibility expected by educational institutions and required by employers in the workplace.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, dishonest or attempted dishonest conduct during tests or examinations by using books, notes, diagrams, or other aids not authorized by the examiner. It includes communicating with others for the purpose of getting information, copying from the work of others, and giving information to other students who are taking the test or examination.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the presentation or submission of the work of another person, without citation or credits, as your own work.

In matters of dishonesty, the instructor will write a brief report of the incident and submit, it along with all relevant supporting documents, (test papers, “crib” notes, essays, etc.) to the appropriate Program Manager who shall, in consultation with the VP Academic and when necessary, the brokering institution, determine appropriate disciplinary action.

Disciplinary action may include but is not limited to…

  • mark penalties in courses such as a zero grade on the assignment, exam, or in the class,
  • written reprimand,
  • suspension,
  • withholding of grades or certification, and
  • expulsion at the prerogative of the VP Academic.

Not all decisions will be the same; penalties will vary according to the circumstances of the incident and the individual.

If you disagree with the decision, you have the right to appeal.
