Collaboration and Group Work

What is permitted as group work can vary from course to course, and from assignment to assignment within a course.

Collaborating with others can help you understand and retain information, clarify confusing subject materials, and apply what you have learned. However, it is your responsibility as a student to determine what kinds of collaboration are permitted within a particular course or assignment.

The course instructor will clarify and provide direction about what kinds of group work and collaboration are acceptable within a particular course or assignment.

Remember, sharing your work with another student when sharing is not permitted constitutes
aiding and abetting. Both you and the person with whom you shared the work may be in violation of the Senate Policy on Academic Honesty.
