Follow all policies related to Academic Integrity at Miami!
Academic Integrity is taken seriously and violations can have severe consequences that impact international student status.
International students can be targeted by fraudulent academic services for contract cheating. Paying for work and then submitting someone else’s work as your own is a form of cheating and plagiarism, which are violations of the Academic Integrity policy. Companies or individuals offering “homework help” or “expert tutors” may not be legitimate sources of academic support.
Specific questions about completing an assignment should be directed to the professor and best practice is to make sure you are managing your time in order to complete assignments as outlined in the course syllabus.
If you are looking for academic support resources, please contact the Rinella Learning Center. The ELL Writing Center is also available for students whose first language is not English.
Also reminder that Wednesdays from 2-3pm in the International Student Center (MacMillan 017) a Student Success Librarian is onsite for any questions about citations, finding research and other Library resources.
