Study.com's Academic Integrity Policy

Instructor: Nicole Richards
This resource provides information on Study.com's Academic Integrity Policy, specifically as it pertains to college courses.

Final Exams

Before taking a final exam in pursuit of credit recommendation, students are required to sign an agreement verifying their identity and asserting that they will not violate Study.com's academic honesty policies. Though not limited to the below statements, these policies forbid:

  • Falsification: Falsification of any information pertaining to the student's identity.
  • Cheating: Giving or receiving assistance during a proctored final exam, attempting to give or receive assistance or using any materials during an exam besides ones that are specifically stated as allowed and approved by the online proctoring service and Study.com.
  • Colluding: Helping or in any way contributing to another student participating in an act of academic dishonestly or receiving such help.

Additional Assignments

Before submitting additional assignments, students are required to provide their name and email. Final assignments should be:

  • Original Work: All required assignments for Study.com should be completely original work. Anything you submit for a Study.com course cannot have been previously submitted for any other courses, including ones you have already taken on Study.com.
  • Not Plagiarized: We take plagiarism very seriously. Plagiarizing may result in an automatic fail for the assignment or course grade, and potentially termination of your Study.com subscription. Instances of plagiarism will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • Properly Cited: All assignments must be properly cited per the course guidelines and assignment instructions.

Consequences of Violation

Any actions deemed to be in violation of academic integrity may result in an immediate termination of the student's final exam or additional assignment(s) and may prevent any potential for retake opportunities. Study.com reserves the right to investigate any suspected incidences of cheating or other academic integrity violations, including but not limited to, proctored exams that have been flagged for suspicious behavior.
