Georgian College's Academic Integrity regulations state:

"Cheating is the use of inappropriate, prohibited, or unacknowledged materials, information aids, or misrepresentation in any academic work. The use of books, notes, online resources, electronic technology (including but not limited to calculators, cell phones, tablets, and voice and video recorders) and conversation with others is restricted or forbidden in many instances of academic work and would constitute cheating. Students may not request others (including commercial or free term-paper organizations) to conduct research or prepare any work for them" (Georgian College, n.d., 8.2.1).

Georgian College's Academic Integrity regulations state:
8.2.2 Fabrication
"Fabrication is the falsification or invention of any information or citation in an academic work or program documentation.

You must never falsify a record of any kind, nor permit another person to do so. Fabricating an academic record includes, but is not limited to clinical permits, criminal reference checks, co-op jobs, placements, employer or placement supervisor evaluation, or signatures.

False information may not be used in any academic work without the prior authorization of the faculty. It is considered misconduct, for instance, to analyze one sample in an experiment and invent data based on that single experiment for several more required analyses. The actual and original source of the information must be acknowledged in a citation (Section 8.2.3 Plagiarism)"  (Georgian College, n.d., 8.2.2).

Georgian College's Academic Integrity regulations state:

"Plagiarism is the representation of another's words or ideas as one’s own, in any academic work. Whenever students use words or ideas that are not their own when submitting scholarly work, they must cite their sources with an in-text citation, use quotation marks where appropriate, and include a list of references for the sources cited. Failure to do this constitutes plagiarism.

Students must not allow anyone access to the work they have prepared for evaluation, whether in a test, examination or assignment, etc. The student is the only one who should receive credit for what they know, unless prior agreement has
been reached with the faculty that group work (and group credit) is allowed.

Self-plagiarism is the resubmission of previous work, or portions thereof without the permission of the current faculty. Students should be aware that plagiarism or self-plagiarism of any part of a work is an academic misconduct; there is no partial responsibility or penalty.

To avoid plagiarism/self-plagiarism, every source of information must be identified and properly documented according to an established writing convention determined by the faculty, for example; American Psychological Association (APA)
style. Faculty have the right to request that students submit their work for electronic text matching" (Georgian College, n.d., 8.2.3).
