If you suspect your computer files or hard copies of your work have been lost or stolen, report the incident to your instructor immediately and request an extension for completing the work if necessary.
Witnessing academic dishonesty
Even though you may not cheat or plagiarize, you may witness others in your class cheating or plagiarizing. If this happens, discuss the situation with your course instructor or advisor and ask for advice on how to deal with it. Such disclosure can be especially important in protecting yourself if you have to work with these students on course activities.
