Click on the link in the e-mail to enroll in the course. If the link is not clickable, copy and paste it into your web browser.  You will land on a page confirming your registration.

  • The course is in six parts: a Welcome and 5 sections. You will be tested at the end of each section. If you fail a test, you will be linked back to the beginning of that section so that you can review the materials again. You will then be given another test. This test will not be identical to the one you failed.
  • After you pass an assessment for each section and are returned to the main course page, the section you most recently completed successfully should be marked with a green “Done” message, and the next section should become available for you to begin. If your recently completed section is not marked green, try refreshing the page.

  • Download, screenshot, or photograph your certificate and send it from your Villanova email account to with the subject line “Academic Integrity Program Certificate.”
