Statement on Academic Honesty Academic honesty and integrity is expected at all times. Academic dishonesty, including but not limited to plagiarism and cheating, and other forms of academic misconduct, will not be tolerated. Plagiarism includes using un-attributed quotations, and not citing ideas that are not original to yourself. Even copying a single sentence that is not your own (and not properly citing your source) is an act of plagiarism. Paraphrasing others ideas, without citation, is also plagiarism. Purchasing or downloading a paper (or portions of papers) from the Web is dishonest, and exceedingly easy to catch. Cases of academic honesty will be handled according to University guidelines, but at the very minimum will mean getting a zero on the assignment in question. Official Statement on Academic Integrity: “The Syracuse University Academic Integrity Policy holds students accountable for the integrity of the work they submit. Students should be familiar with the Policy and know that it is their responsibility to learn about instructor and general academic expectations with regard to proper citation of sources in written work. The policy also governs the integrity of work submitted in exams and assignments as well as the veracity of signatures on attendance sheets and other verifications of participation in class activities. Serious sanctions can result from academic dishonesty of any sort. For more information and the complete policy, see the Academic Integrity Policy and Procedures (PDF) .” (Source: ) Statement on Disability: “If you believe that you need accommodations for a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services(ODS), , located in Room 309 of 804 University Avenue, or call (315) 443- 4498 (315) 443-4498 for an appointment to discuss your needs and the process for requesting accommodations. ODS is responsible for coordinating disability-related accommodations and will issue students with documented disabilities Accommodation Authorization Letters, as 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.
