SEECS requires all students to adhere to high standards of integrity in their academic work.
The school follows a zero-tolerance policy for activities such as plagiarism and cheating.
Students found involved in such activities are subject to serious disciplinary action. This
may include being failed by the instructor, academic suspension or expulsion.

Plagiarism is defined as the use, whether by paraphrase or direct quotation, of the
published or unpublished work of another without full and clear acknowledgment.
Cheating includes the giving or receiving of unauthorized assistance on quizzes,
examinations or written assignments from any source not approved by the instructor.
Examples of cheating include but are not limited to:
       •   Submitting someone else’s work as one’s own with or without the permission
            of the individual concerned.
       •    Allowing someone to copy one’s work.

       •    Using unauthorized materials during a test or exam.

SEECS provides an environment that supports both intellectual and personal growth. This
requires striking a balance between upholding individual freedom and demanding respect
for the rights of others. Each student has the right to pursue peacefully his / her study, and
other students must respect this right.

It may be your first or recent experience with certain freedoms and privileges. The
university should not therefore be constantly watching your actions or judging your
behaviour. When your actions clash with the rights of others to a safe environment, the
university considers it obligatory to intervene and preserve the academic rights of students
as a community. You are therefore expected to demonstrate a high standard of conduct -
one that is necessary to maintain the educational quality of the campus.

Students are expected to furnish accurate and complete information on all university forms
and documents, including applications for admission and financial aid, references, local and
home addresses and for other types of records. Provision of any inaccurate/ concealment
of information may lead to termination from the institute.
