Recent Course Assignment Violations
Although cases of plagiarism and academic integrity violations among CGA-BC students are extremely rare, all CGA students should be aware of what constitutes a violation and its consequences. As some students have discovered, CGA-BC does not accept copying assignments under any circumstances. Students caught in this situation receive marks of 0% for their assignment work. In addition, a letter of warning is placed in their permanent student files.
Here are some examples of recent course assignment violations to assist you in understanding what constitutes a violation of the academic integrity policy.
The economy may have slowed but demand for CGA members and students are still strong. For proof, see the Hot Jobs page updated weekly. If you haven’t already signed up to CGAjobs.org, do so. And don’t forget to post your resumé to the site.
