The Honour Code is an undertaking of the students, individually and collectively:
- that they will not give or receive aid in examinations; that they will not give or receive unpermitted aid in class work, in the preparation of reports, or in any other work that is to be used by the instructor as the basis of grading;
- that they will do their share and take an active part in seeing to it that others as well as themselves uphold the spirit and letter of the Honour Code.
While the faculty alone has the right and obligation to set academic requirements, the students and faculty will work together to establish optimal conditions for honourable academic work. Examples of conduct which have been regarded as being in violation of the Honour Code include:
- Copying from another's examination paper or allowing another to copy from one's own paper
- Unpermitted collaboration
- Revising and resubmitting a quiz or exam for regrading, without the instructor's knowledge and consent
- Giving or receiving unpermitted aid on a take-home examination
- Giving or receiving aid on an academic assignment under circumstances in which a reasonable person should have known that such aid was not permitted.
- Penalties are envisaged for violations of the Honour Code on the side of the NASP students.
