ACADEMIC INTEGRITY If you are not familiar with the UNCG Academic Integrity Policy, I suggest that you visit the website at . Each of us has our part to play in upholding academic integrity at UNCG. If UNCG is producing cheaters, this reflects poorly on the rest of the university community, even though you may not be the guilty party. A true friend will confront the person cheating. Individuals do not change behavior if they never have to account for what they are doing. If you observe something that is not correct and refuse to take any action, you are developing a habit that may be as detrimental to society as the habit you are allowing others to continue. Remember that your honesty and integrity are more important than a grade in a course or even a university diploma.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
