Code of Conduct – Plagiarism & Cheating
INTRODUCTION

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and the University condemns the acts of plagiarism, cheating, and fraud http://umanitoba.ca/student/resource/student_advocacy/cheating_plagiarism_fraud.html. These acts may lead to

  • a mark of 'F' in the course
  • suspension from the University for a year or more
  • expulsion from the University
  • in some fraud charges criminal prosecution

 

Failure (F)
This is the normal penalty when the offense is probably intentional and is a first offense. Often a failing grade is given resulting in an F - CW
The CW notation indicates a 'F' due to 'compulsory withdrawal in that course'.

Suspension
Severe penalties apply if there is evidence of planning or involvement of others in the offense.
Suspension for one year or more is typical for a student who was previously found guilty, even if the offense resulting in suspension is less serious.

  • A transcript notation is made of the suspension.
  • After serving the suspension a student may make a request in writing to the Director of Student Records that this notice be removed.

Expulsion
Expulsion, unlike suspension, is deemed to be permanent.
Expulsion appears to be reserved for very serious cases which may also involve criminal prosecution.

Criminal Prosecution
Criminal prosecution is reserved for criminal acts, such as fraud, forgery, theft and impersonation.

If at anytime you are are in doubt about what constitute a violation ASK YOUR ADVISOR.

These actions are considered a very serious offense.

 

DISCIPLINARY MARKS & GRADES
  • The 'F' grade cannot be removed from the transcript.
  • The only thing that is removed is the comment for disciplinary action on the transcript.
  • The change of grade reason, 'DA' Disciplinary Action, which accompanies the grade does will not appear on an official transcript, however it will appear on the unofficial transcript.
