Academic Integrity

"All members of the University community share the responsibility for the academic standards and reputation of the University. Academic integrity is a cornerstone of the development and acquisition of knowledge. It is founded on principles of respect for knowledge, truth, scholarship and acting with honesty. Upholding academic integrity is a condition of continued membership in the university community." ⁠

—SFU Policy S 10.01, 1.3

The SFU Department of English is committed to fairness and impartiality in the evaluation of student work. For the letter grades, numerical equivalents, and general evaluation criteria that we use in our classes, please review the department’s grading standards, available below.


Modern Language Association Style Guide

The SFU Department of English (like English departments at most North American universities) requires that all work follow the formatting guidelines developed by the Modern Language Association, or MLA for short.  Some departments at SFU use other formatting guidelines like APA style.

The MLA Style Guide will introduce you to MLA formatting. If you continue in English studies, you will want to purchase a writer's handbook and study MLA style in greater detail.
