Do you know what "contract cheating" is?  Most people don't.  The Office of Academic Integrity took part in the International Day Against Contract Cheating by hosting a white-board demonstration to bring awareness to this hard-to-detect form of academic dishonesty.

Contract cheating occurs when a student pays someone to complete coursework for them, and it turns out that in the state of Maryland it is ILLEGAL.  Possible penalties include less than 6 months in prison, or a fine of up to $1000.  

Stevenson's Student Academic Integrity Committee (SAIC)  and the Office of Academic Integrity are committed to helping our Mustangs understand the importance of doing their own work, so they can excel with integrity.
