Student Agreement via registration

Students who register for courses at Camosun are required to sign an Academic Integrity agreement as a part of the registration process. Below is a description of the process, a screen shot of where these agreements are found in student accounts, and the text of the agreement.

 

  • Students access the agreements through their myCamosun site by clicking their C# and Required Agreements link

 

 

  • Below is the text for the Academic Integrity agreement that students sign upon registration (current as of Dec 2 2022)

          To register, you must sign this agreement by clicking Accept below. This acknowledges you are aware of your Academic Integrity responsibilities. 
           All Camosun students must follow the expectations set out in the college's 
Academic Integrity Policy . Students must complete all work, study and assignments honestly, without cheating. This includes plagiarizing, lying, falsifying information, or receiving unauthorized help. 
     The Academic Integrity Policy also details the consequences of failing to meet these standards. Breaches of academic integrity can result in penalties -- for example, loss of marks or failing grades. Repeated or severe offenses may result in suspension. 
The college provides resources and supports to help you understand academic integrity. The best place to start is the 
Academic Integrity Online Guide. This guide provides real-life examples of what to avoid. It also suggests how to ensure you complete your work with integrity. 
           If you are unsure what plagiarism, cheating or misconduct are, ask your instructor. Or email: 
integrity@camosun.ca.
           An instructor may require that you complete a short online course about Academic Integrity. To learn more about the course, email: 
integrity@camosun.ca.
           I have read the college's Academic Integrity policy, and commit to completing my studies with honesty and integrity. 
           I will respect the standards set by my instructors and the college and I will be responsible for the consequences of my choices and actions.

Discover tool early access

Once students have access to D2L they can access the Discover tool and can register for the Academic Integrity Course, even if they do not yet have access to the course site of their registered classes.

Students have access to D2L approximately 30 days before the start of their classes if they are registered for at least one course.

Exceptions to this include:

  • waitlisted students who are not added to the system until they are fully registered in at least one course
  • students with missing information (for example a missing first or last name).
