Choose Help Wisely

Some students end up cheating because they choose the wrong kind of “help”--usually from contract cheating sites online (people and companies who do your work for you).

Don't turn to online resources. Check out the following resources on campus:

  • Professors and TAs -  They are your first source of help on your academic work.
  • Writing Center  - Having a hard time getting your ideas on paper? Is your writer’s-block stressing you out? Stress no more. Make an appointment! 
  • Undergraduate Peer Writing Mentors - They will sit down with you and look over your ideas and help you break down your assignment so that you can feel more confident in completing your paper.
  • OASIS - They have various tutoring services that they offer for free. You can also find many helpful tips and resources on their website that can help your learning experience here at UCSD much easier.
  • Tutoring or study programs - Many departments offer further help.
  • Your college's academic advising office - Stop by and take advantage of 15 minute walk-in sessions with counselors or schedule longer appointments and get help with any other academic struggles you might be facing. Your academic counselors are there to help you succeed.
