As an international student coming from a different learning environment, it is important for you to be aware and have an understanding of the university’s values and expectations as it relates to academic integrity - which means honesty in one’s academic work.

As a key to success, it is crucial for you to be aware of relevant University policies related to academic integrity. The Academic Integrity Office website helps students avoid unintentional academic misconduct, including animated episodes. We also encourage you to read and become familiar with the  (PDF file) Student Code of Conduct.

Each faculty/school has staff available to provide advice and assistance, concerning program-related questions and issues to students.
