Academic Honesty & Student Code of Conduct

As a Faculty that is committed to promoting a fair, respectable and trusting learning environment, LA&PS has specific regulations around the academic honesty and conduct of our students. The intense demands of a university education can create the temptation to breach these ethical and legal standards, but doing so may result in serious consequences for you.

Please familiarize yourself with your rights and responsibilities at York by reviewing the Senate Policy on Academic Honesty and the Student Code of Conduct. For additional information, read the Academic Honesty letter sent to LA&PS students.

If you find yourself in need of support for one of these issues, you’ll find helpful services below.
