Academic Misconduct

Have you received a notice of alleged Academic Misconduct? Have you read the notice and feel like you don’t know where to start? Don't worry, the ANUSA Student Assistance Officers can help you.

We can guide you through the process, explain the relevant policies and procedures, and can help you draft a response to the allegation. They are also able to accompany you to an inquiry as a support person if required.

Academic Misconduct includes, but isn't limited to, acting dishonestly or unfairly, including plagiarism or collusion in relation to an assessment. In relation to an examination, academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, and/or taking a prohibited document into an examination.

Whether you are receiving a notice to attend a review of the allegation, a notice to attend an inquiry or if you are interested in appealing a decision that has already been made, feel free to speak to a Student Assistance Advisor for advice and assistance. They can help you understand the shortcomings in your work, explain the academic misconduct rules and procedure, assist in drafting a response to the accusation and accompany you to the meetings and inquiry.
