Department Undergraduate Notes:

Code of Academic Honesty
The Department of French applies the university's policy and procedures governing matters of academic dishonesty in all French courses. Students registered in French courses are expected to respect the standards laid out in SFU's Code of Academic Honesty, published at the university website http://www.sfu.ca/policies/teaching/t10-02.htm. Evidence of any of the various forms of Academic Disonesty described in this policy document (section 3.0) will be dealt with accordingly to the specified Procedure and Penalties (section 5.0). Students should therefore read this policy document carefully.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
