Plagiarism (from 2013-2014 Undergraduate Calendar)

The University of New Brunswick places a high value on academic integrity and has a policy on plagiarism, cheating and other academic offences.

Plagiarism includes:
1. quoting verbatim or almost verbatim from any source, including all electronic sources, without acknowledgement;
2. adopting someone else’s line of thought, argument, arrangement, or supporting evidence without acknowledgement;
3. submitting someone else’s work, in whatever form without acknowledgement;
4. knowingly representing as one’s own work any idea of another.

Examples of other academic offences include: cheating on exams, tests, assignments or reports; impersonating somebody at a test or exam; obtaining an exam, test or other course materials through theft, collusion, purchase or other improper manner, submitting course work that is identical or substantially similar to work that has been submitted fro another course; and more as set out in the academic regulations found in the Undergraduate Calendar.

Penalties for plagiarism and other academic offences range from a minimum of F (zero) in the assignment, exam or test to a maximum of suspension or expulsion from the University, plus a notation of the academic offence on the student’s transcript.

For more information, please see the Undergraduate Calendar, Section VIII, or visit It is the student’s responsibility to know the regulations.
