According to the Academic Integrity Procedure for Sheridan College, the Library & Learning Services' Academic Integrity Remediation (AIR) process can be used by faculty as part of a Level 1 academic integrity (AI) sanction. Remediation provides students with the opportunity to learn more about Sheridan’s expectations for academic integrity and helps them identify how to avoid engaging in a future breach.
Remediation is tracked through the Student Information System.
After being notified of the sanction, students have 30 days to complete remediation.
Students may have the opportunity to re-submit their work at the discretion of faculty after successful completion of remediation.
Here's how students complete the AIR process:
Faculty notify student of sanction, and refer students to Tutoring to book a remediation appointment with a Reference & Citation Specialist.
After receiving notification of the sanction, students will have 30 days to meet with a Reference & Citation Specialist. Reference & Citation Specialists are available at Davis, Trafalgar, and HMC, including evenings and weekends.
The Reference & Citation Specialist will register the student in the Academic Integrity Tutorial on SLATE. Students must complete this tutorial prior to their appointment with the Reference & Citation Specialist. The tutorial will take approximately one hour to complete.
The Reference & Citation Specialist will meet with students for their appointment to answer any questions about the tutorial, research and citation practices, or about the student’s assignment.
Students will complete a practice multiple-choice quiz after the appointment based on the Academic Integrity Tutorial.
To pass remediation, students will need to complete a formal quiz, and obtain at least 80% or higher. Faculty will receive an email if students do not complete remediation within 30 days.
Faculty will receive an email if students do not complete remediation within 30 days. Faculty may re-assess the sanction according to the Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. See Sheridan College’s Academic Integrity Policy.

The Academic Integrity Tutorial is available on SLATE. To register, please contact the Academic Integrity Office. After completion of the tutorial, Sheridan College students will be able to:
Define academic integrity.
Apply ethical decision-making to avoid engaging in academic integrity breaches.
Recognize the importance of ethical and effective research practices.
Discover what Sheridan services exist to assist students.
Identify key components of Sheridan’s Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure and related penalties.
Relate the importance of academic integrity and how it is connected to professional conduct and reputation.
Faculty can use the Academic Integrity Tutorial as part of their classroom instruction. First, please request access by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, to include the tutorial in your SLATE courses, follow these instructions.
Completion of remediation will be tracked through the Student Information System (i.e. PeopleSoft). Faculty will receive an email notification if students do not complete remediation within 30 days of the initial sanction. Faculty, or the Associate Dean, may re-assess the sanction if remediation is not completed by the designated period. See Sheridan College's Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure.
