The use of notes, documents, or answers during tests/quizzes, or the copying of one student’s completed assignments or answers by another; allowing another to do the same; or having access to information such as formulas or calculations, notes etc., except where expressly allowed. Giving or receiving limited help in trouble-shooting a part of an assignment is not normally considered cheating. However, allowing another student to write any part of an assignment, copying another’s file or assignment, and excessive collaboration on assignments, are all considered cheating (unless specifically approved otherwise). The student providing such assistance is considered to be cheating as well. Never allow another student to look at your assignment nor to borrow your electronic file. It is also considered cheating for a student to have access to unauthorized information designed to assist during a test. Having access to an answer or related information in whatever form, whether or not it is used, is considered cheating.
