Academic Integrity FAQs

How do I avoid academic dishonesty?

Prepare yourself to handle academic expectations by setting aside time to successfully complete assignments and prepare for tests, and by allotting time for other activities and responsibilities.

Manage your time and responsibilities; do not let them manage you. Get familiar with College and departmental policies regarding academic dishonesty.

Get to know your instructors. Ask them for extra help with confusing or easily misunderstood material or class expectations.

During the reporting process, you will be given an opportunity to explain your situation to your instructor and provide information you believe is important to be considered in the matter.

If you disagree with the determination of responsibility, you may appeal the reported academic dishonesty through the student conduct process.
