Academic Honesty & Academic Integrity
Academic honesty requires that persons do not falsely claim credit for the ideas, writing or other intellectual property of others, either by presenting such works as their own or through impersonation. Similarly, academic honesty requires that persons do not cheat (attempt to gain an improper advantage in an academic evaluation), nor attempt or actually alter, suppress, falsify or fabricate any research data or results, official academic record, application or document. To view Senate policy on academic honesty, visit http://www.yorku.ca/univsec/policies/document.php?document=69. York University has developed a Web site dedicated to academic integrity, including resources for students and an online tutorial. For more information, visit http://vpacademic.yorku.ca/academicintegrity/index.php#.

Fall Term Final Grades
Grades will be released incrementally to the students’ on-line grade reports and transcripts as soon as they are uploaded onto the system. Because grades will be submitted on a rolling basis, students do not need to contact instructors about grades which do not appear for some courses while others are available. Students should wait until middle of January before inquiring about their final grades. On Tuesday, January 26, (blank) NGR will be converted to “F” NGR indicating a failure in the course. If students receive a failure grade due to a missing grade, they should contact their instructor(s) as soon as possible after this date.

Online Course Evaluations
Online course evaluations for Fall term courses are available to students until December 9. To provide feedback on your course directors, visit http://courseevaluations.yorku.ca.
