Academic Honesty is a fundamental principle of student life. USP students sign our Code of Academic Honesty prior to commencing their studies. As stated in the ACADEMIC HONESTY: POLICY & PROCEDURES (FOR USP STUDENTS), Policy Number: 3.4.2, there are 3 main kinds of academic dishonesty; plagarism, collusion and cheating.

4.1 Plagarism: Plagiarism is the copying of another person's creative work and using it as your own without explicitly giving credit to the original creator. Work copied without acknowledgement from a book, from another student's work, from the internet or from any other source is plagiarism. 

4.2 Collusion: Collusion means working with someone else to deceive or mislead to gain an unfair academic advantage. 

4.3 Cheating: Cheating involves acting in any way that directly contradicts the explicit rules and guiding principles of that form of assessment. It applies to any form of examination including short tests, quizzes and final examinations.
