Academic integrity means being honest in academic work and taking responsibility for learning the conventions of scholarship.
La Trobe University views this seriously as evidenced by the following extract:
Academic honesty is a fundamental principle in teaching, learning, research and scholarship. The University
requires its academic staff and students to observe the highest ethical standards in all aspects of academic
work and it demonstrates its commitment to these values by awarding due credit for honestly conducted
scholarly work, and by penalising academic misconduct and all forms of cheating.
Academic Integrity Procedures (2012, p. 1 of 6)
Academic misconduct includes improper referencing, plagiarism, copying and cheating. You should familiarise yourself with
your responsibilities in relation to Academic Integrity and if you have any questions, direct them to your Course Coordinator.
Information can be found on the website at: Academic Integrity, Student administration, La Trobe University

adverse circumstances beyond the control of a student, that impact negatively on that student’s ability to demonstrate their
learning achievement for an assessment task, is taken into account.
Eligibility to apply for Special Consideration does not automatically imply eligibility to receive it. Certain criteria must be
satisfied in order to receive Special Consideration.
