5. Honor Code & The Writing Center

As final exam week approaches, we anticipate—and encourage— an increase in student visits to the Writing Center. Recently, our tutor activity logs indicate that some students have come in for help with “finals” and “midterms.” Because these terms are vague, we’d like the opportunity to clarify the role of the Writing Center so that we can avoid potential Honor Code violations.

Many professors assign take-home, essay exams in addition to research and term papers, and some of these assignments overlap, so we understand that differentiating can be confusing! Keep in mind that Writing Center tutors CANNOT provide writing help if the professor requires that students complete the assignment individually.

If you’d like to visit the Writing Center but are unsure about whether or not seeking help on an end of term assignment conflicts with the Honor Code, PLEASE help us out by speaking with your professor to clarify the expectations for the assignment in question. Also, when you visit the Writing Center, be sure to bring with you a copy of the assignment instructions.

Thank you all for your attention to this matter. Good luck with all end of term, research, and exam essays!
