    ACADEMIC HONESTY

    Cheating won’t help you learn and it will not be tolerated.  If you are suspected of cheating (that includes helping other students cheat), you will receive a zero score on whatever you were cheating on.  This score will not be dropped or replaced.  You may also be subject to other disciplinary action according to OHS policy.

     

    Homework assignments should be completed independently.  You may find it helpful to form study groups and work on homework assignments together, but you are cheating yourself out of the opportunity to learn if you divide up the homework assignments among study group members and or copy the work off of other student(s).
