Academic integrity can be achieved more easily if you know what is expected of you AND if you know the resources available. 

What is expected of you: Academic integrity is doing your own work based on your knowledge and understanding of the course content, without the use of unauthorized assistance from start to finish fro all academic work.

Academic integrity is “a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage.” If developed in your academic life, these six values will serve you well in your professional life.

What resources are available to you: Here are three ideas** that will help you to implement the six fundamental values:

  • Identify your academic challenges early. Then find a tutor on campus.
  • Manage your time. The most common cause of academic misconduct is lack of time management. Learn how to manage your time (as well as prepare for tests, take good notes, and read strategically) by utilizing academic coaching.

There are several more resources here to help guide you to making the best decisions throughout your academic career.
