Academic Integrity Tutorial

Tutorial Information and Instructions

What is the Academic Integrity Tutorial (AIT)?

The AIT is an online presentation designed to help you understand issues related to academic integrity and Fordham's Undergraduate Policy on Academic Integrity. It explores what it means to plagiarize, cheat, and misrepresent scholarly work with examples and illustrations.

In addition, the AIT provides strategies that can be used to improve academic efforts and avoid committing academic offenses. It concludes with a series of questions that you must complete. All FCRH freshmen and external transfer students to FCRH must complete and pass the AIT in order to register for the Spring 2020 semester.
