Academic dishonesty is an intentional, reckless, careless, or improper act for the purpose of obtaining an academic advantage, credential, admission, or credit by deception or fraudulent means. It can include, but is not limited to “cheating” (NSCC, 2017).
Examples of academic dishonesty include, but is not limited to:
Copying the work of another person
Doing work for another student
Using or consulting any unauthorized source or materials
Using one’s own work for more than one class without permission
Collaborating on work that is assigned to be done independently
