Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is a mandatory subject for all Charles Sturt students. You must complete this subject before 18 June 2021 to see your final grades.

About this subject

It's important that our students understand and commit to their academic obligations.

A new subject site has been created for Academic Integrity and will appear in your Interact2 dashboard.

It will always be available on Interact2, should you want to revisit the content at any time.

This subject will help you to:

  • Understand the University's Academic Integrity Policy
  • Apply the principles of honesty, fairness and responsibility in learning to your studies.
  • Outline support services available to help you meet your academic obligations.

It will also help you understand concepts and potential consequences of practices including:

  • plagiarism
  • cheating and contract cheating
  • collusion.

Contract cheating poses additional threats. Besides being a form of academic misconduct, contract cheating companies might use your personal information to blackmail you into making further payments after you use their services.

How to complete the subject

  1. Work through the Academic Integrity subject in Interact2.
  2. Complete the quizzes to demonstrate your understanding.

There are five short quizzes to complete. You will need to score 80% on each quiz to demonstrate your competence.

The subject takes 2.5 hours to complete. You do not need to complete it all at once.

In most cases, you only need to complete this course once. However, if you receive a finding of academic misconduct, you may be required to repeat the course.
