Answer 5


You could be charged with Plagiarism (after all, you are handing someone else’s work in as your own), and your friend could be charged with Participating in an Offence. Both of these charges can carry penalties of up to F8 in the class and a suspension. A notation of 8 stands for Inappropriate Academic Behavior, and it stays on your transcript for 2 years. After that, the “8” is removed, and you are left with just the grade. See Plagiarism (Section 30.3.2(1)) and Participating in an Offence (section 30.3.6(5)) in the Code of Student Behavior.
