Academic Integrity for Students


Many of the same strategies to help reduce plagiarism also work to reduce contract cheating, including:

  • discuss contract cheating and academic integrity with your instructor
  • keep careful research notes
  • cite all sources – regardless of their format – that are not your own
  • do not share tests, exams, or assignments with others
  • do not upload or distribute tests, exams, or assignments to websites unless directed by your instructor
  • seek help from the Learning Curve with topics such as time management, study skills, stress management, and more
  • maintain regular class attendance
  • if in doubt about the nature of a website, talk with your instructor or one of the support areas mentioned
