The following is an extract from the Berkeley Campus Code of Student Conduct:

B. Academic Violations

  1. Cheating. Cheating is defined as fraud, deceit, or dishonesty in an academic assignment, or using or attempting to use materials, or assisting others in using materials which are prohibited or inappropriate in the context of the academic assignment in question. This includes, but is not limited to:
    1. Providing answers to or receiving answers from others for any academic assignment. In "group assignments" and "cooperative learning" situations, it is the responsibility of the student to ascertain from the instructor to what degree the work must be done exclusively by the student or may be done in collaboration with others;
    2. Using notes, information, calculators, or other electronic devices or programs during exams or for assignments from which they have been expressly or implicitly prohibited;
    3. Improperly obtaining or using improperly obtained information about an exam or assignment in advance of its availability to other students, or assisting others in doing so;
    4. Putting one's name on another student’s exam or assignment; or
    5. Altering previously graded work for purpose of seeking a grade appeal.
  1. Plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as the use of intellectual material produced by another person without acknowledging its source. This includes, but is not limited to:
    1. Copying from the writings or works of others into one's academic assignment without attribution, or submitting such work as if it were one's own;
    2. Using the views, opinions, or insights of another without acknowledgment; or
    3. Paraphrasing the characteristic or original phraseology, metaphor, or other literary device of another without proper attribution.
  1. Furnishing false information in the context of an academic assignment. This includes, but is not limited to:
    1. Writing an exam or term paper for another student;
    2. Soliciting another person to take an exam or write a paper for one's own class;
    3. Submitting the same piece of work as partial fulfillment of the requirements in more than one course without permission of the instructor;
    4. Representing oneself as another person, or failing to identify oneself forthrightly and honestly in the context of an academic obligation; or
    5. Representing, explicitly or implicitly, that work obtained from another source was produced by oneself.
