class, all assignments are to be completed by the individual student unless otherwise specified. Submitting work by another student is cheating. Submitting falsified work, such as submitting an interview paper without having personally conducted a face-to-face interview that produced the material discussed, is cheating. Misrepresenting anything about an assignment or test is cheating; honestly explaining is always the best policy. Plagiarism is using someone else’s words, information, or ideas without giving that person credit. This includes copying from your peers, websites, or other public sources, even brief phrases, on papers, tests, or any other work. Simply editing or changing parts of copied text does not make it your original work; the result is still plagiarized. Plagiarism is immoral and dishonest. It is easy to avoid: just use your own words and indicate the sources of all your information. I have failed numerous students for plagiarism. University policy requires me to report plagiarism, and the University may impose sanctions up to expulsion, especially for repeated reports. A more complete explanation, including advice on how to use material without plagiarizing, is posted on the class website. The assignment information posted on the class website will include guidelines on how to format citations, if appropriate.

    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.
