Holmes Institute is committed to ensuring and upholding Academic Integrity, as Academic Integrity
is integral to maintaining academic quality and the reputation of Holmes’ graduates. Accordingly, all
assessment tasks need to comply with academic integrity guidelines. Table 1 identifies the six
categories of Academic Integrity breaches. If you have any questions about Academic Integrity issues
related to your assessment tasks, please consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing
guidelines and support resources. Many of these resources can also be found through the Study Sills
link on Blackboard.
Academic Integrity breaches are a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
deduction of marks, failure of the assessment task or unit involved, suspension of course enrolment,
or cancellation of course enrolment.
