Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism and cheating are serious academic offences that show a lack of integrity and character, inconsistent with the philosophy and values of the Hull Adult Education Centre.


Plagiarism is taking all or part of someone else’s work and calling it your own, without the author’s consent, or acknowledging the source.

Cheating is copying, exchanging assignments or tests with somebody else, or using notes or other forms of aid without the teacher’s permission.


For these offences, the student will receive a zero on the work, exam or assignment submitted, as well as a suspension from the class for a period of time to be determined by the teacher and administration. A second offence will result in an immediate withdrawal from the Centre for a minimum of one year.
