Cheating, more often than not, will result in a very awkward and stressful situation for both parties concerned in the relationship. If you have cheated and wish to apologize for your mistake, then writing an apology letter will not only show your sincerity but it may also help to express everything you want to say in a less than ideal situation.

Dear {Teacher/School}

I am very sorry for cheating on the {test, assignment, project, etc…}.

I know that you, your classroom and {school name} has zero tolerance on academic dishonesty. In my ambition to receive recognition and a good grade, I lost sight of the fact that these things are earned and not freely given.

This ordeal has been very stressful, but I have learned much from this situation. Cheating—no matter the motives or the rewards—is immoral and unjustifiable.

{If applicable}
If you, my classmates and {school name} are willing to accept my apology, I humbly ask that you reconsider or lighten my punishment. The dedication that {school} has shown to its students’ learning experience is something I have a great and found respect for. I have learned much already, and I hope to continue learning from {school}.

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,
{Sender}
