    Is cheating worth i ts cost
    Is Cheating Worth Its Cost?

    Pros to Cheating

    Cons to Cheating

    Not learning the material you paid to learn

    Risk poor performance on exams

    If you do not know the material, the exams will be tough

    Risk an Honor Code violation

    Violations appear on your record and are caught by background checks (e.g.security clearance)

    Risk forced completion of an academic integrity seminar

    Cost of ~$100 and your time

    Risk an F in the course

    Cost of ~$1300 (in-state tuition) to retake the class, a delay in graduation, and a lowered GPA

    Risk academic suspension

    Delay in graduation and a notation on your transcript

    Risk expulsion

    All of your time and money to date would be for naught

    • Get past a tough assignment

    • Don't have to do the work
