The consequence for a violation of this policy can incur a range of penalties varying from a 50% penalty through suspension of enrolment.  The penalty would be dependent on the extent of academic misconduct and your history of academic misconduct issues.  All assessments will be automatically submitted to Safe – Assign to assess their originality.
