In order to maintain a culture of academic integrity, members of the University of Waterloo community are expected to promote honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility. All members of the UW community are expected to hold to the highest standard of academic integrity in their studies, teaching, and research.
The Office of Academic Integrity's website contains detailed information on UW policy for students and faculty. This site explains why academic integrity is important and how students can avoid academic misconduct. It also identifies resources available on campus for students and faculty to help achieve academic integrity in—and out of—the classroom.
A student who believes that a decision affecting some aspect of his/her university life has been unfair or unreasonable may have grounds for initiating a grievance. Read Policy 70-Student Petitions and Grievances, Section 4.
A student is expected to know what constitutes academic integrity, to
avoid committing academic offenses, and to take responsibility for
his/her actions. A student who is unsure whether an action
constitutes an offense, or who needs help in learning how to avoid
offenses (e.g., plagiarism, cheating) or about
rules for group
work/collaboration should seek guidance from the course professor,
academic advisor, or the Undergraduate Associate Dean. When
misconduct has been found to have occurred, disciplinary penalties
will be imposed
71—Student Discipline. For information on categories of
offenses and types of penalties, students should refer
For information on commonly misunderstood academic offenses and how to avoid them, students should refer to the Faculty of Mathematics Cheating and Student Academic Discipline Guidelines.
A student may appeal the finding and/or penalty in a decision made under Policy 70—Student Petitions and Grievances (other than regarding a petition) or Policy 71—Student Discipline if a ground for an appeal can be established. Read Policy 72—Student Appeals.
The Office for Persons with Disabilities (OPD), located in Needles Hall, Room 1132, collaborates with all academic departments to arrange appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities without compromising the academic integrity of the curriculum. If you require academic accommodations to lessen the impact of your disability, please register with the OPD at the beginning of each academic term.
