Graduate Students & Academic Misconduct

The Code applies equally to graduate and undergraduate students. The process is also identical, with one exception: If a graduate student commits an act of inappropriate academic behaviour in a course, the report should be directed to the Dean or designate of the Faculty in which the course is offered. This includes inappropriate academic behaviour that occurs on a capping project for a course-based Masters degree.

If the academic dishonesty occurs in the context of activities related solely to the degree (for example, comprehensive exams, a thesis or dissertation), the report should be directed to the Dean or designate of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR).
