How to Maintain Integrity

  • Checking with professors about their expectations for citing sources
  • Reading the syllabus and assignment instructions carefully
  • Asking your professor for permission before you share your work
  • Planning ahead because procrastination and the lack of time leads to the temptation to cheat
  • Making smart decisions like doing your own work, diligently studying for exams, and writing your own essays

When caught cheating, a notation could be permanently placed on the UIS transcript
