McGill University values academic integrity. Therefore all students must understand the meaning and consequences of cheating, plagiarism and other academic offences under the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures.” – Senate resolution, January 29, 2003
Every single course outline at McGill should have the preceding statement somewhere on it. If you don’t abide by Articles 16 and 17 in the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures – which deal with plagiarism and cheating, respectively – you risk penalties ranging from an admonishment to expulsion. But in the “real world,” you may face even harsher consequences.
