What is Stealing?

Stealing from an academic perspective means obtaining unauthorized access to educational materials.  These materials might be tests or quizzes from faculty members, or they may be the work product of another student.  Subcategories of stealing include but are not limited to:

  • Removing an exam or other academic work from a classroom without authorization
  • Taking photos of exams/academic work without authorization or permission
  • Taking someone else’s work without their knowledge
