Academic Integrity Office Tips for Students: Cheating Hurts Everyone

Posted by on Apr 4, 2022 in Resources |

Academic Integrity Matters

“I don’t cheat so it doesn’t impact me.” Cheating in university classes actually hurts everyone. Cheating makes grading in the classroom unfair to other students. It holds the potential to diminish the reputation of your degree within your professional community. It erodes the trust that your communities give to higher education institutions. As a university student, it’s very important to consider the many negative impacts that cheating has on your education.

These are not always easy situations to deal with, but here are a few tips to consider:

  • When/if you hear other students talking about cheating on an assignment, try to provide them other alternatives, like sharing helpful resources, encouraging them to attend instructor office hours, or even just letting them know it’s OK to get one bad grade and do better the next time.
  • If you see academically dishonest behavior occurring, notify your instructor so they can look into the matter and take appropriate steps.
  • If another student asks you to share their work with them, say something like, “No, I can’t do that, sharing my work could get us both into academic integrity trouble. Have you tried using the Fulton Schools Tutoring Center?”
  • The world needs leaders of high character and strong integrity; make it your personal commitment to model these behaviors both in the classroom and in interactions with your classmates.

Please visit the Academic Integrity Office website and the Fulton Schools Resources page for links to the Fulton Schools Tutoring Center and numerous other student resources.

Academic Integrity Office Tips for Students: Programming and Writing Code

Posted by on Mar 4, 2022 in Resources |

Academic Integrity Matters

Just like writing a short story, a how-to guide or even a poem, originality is important when writing code for your class assignments. In most Fulton Schools courses, the code you write must be your own original code that reflects your understanding of the assignment. When struggling with an assignment, it can be tempting to copy or borrow excessively from another person or source to get the assignment finished by the deadline. Do not give in to this temptation! Coding can be difficult but if you apply critical thinking and allow time for design, there is little doubt that you can succeed.

Academic Integrity Office Tips for Students: Develop Good Study Habits

Posted by on Jan 19, 2022 in Resources |

Academic Integrity Matters

One of the cool things about college is how each semester is a new beginning, a chance to do just a little bit (or maybe a lot) better than the last. If you are a senior, take a minute to think back on your academic career. You probably realize that you are a much better student now versus when you started. The reason for this is you learned the importance of developing good habits in your life. Academic integrity issues often come up when a student has been in a panic about a deadline or has not studied enough to master the material. The sooner you can establish good habits and consistency in your life, the better off you will be. Here are a few tips to consider:

Posted by on Dec 16, 2021 in Career, Resources |

Happy New Year!

I usually associate the new year with starting fresh and a good time to set goals. When you think of goal setting, do you immediately think of eating healthier, starting an exercise regimen, saving more money or reducing stress? These are all great personal goals, but I would also encourage you to develop your career/professional development goals. You may have some goals in mind, which is fantastic. If you’re not sure, you may want to consider:
