Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

You Should Know

Under U of T's Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters, plagiarism is a serious offense.  Even if you didn't know you were plagiarizing, you will be found guilty if you should have known - you can't plead ignorance on this issue.

The University takes allegations of plagiarism very seriously.  Students found guilty of committing plagiarism face sanctions up to and including suspension or expulsion.
