What Quizlet is for

Quizlet is for learning and for teaching. We provide tools that empower and enable people to study any subject, anywhere, anytime, in effective and engaging ways.

When using Quizlet, please remember to:

  • Be kind and respectful — We're all on Quizlet to learn, and it's important to treat others as you want to be treated. Encouraging hatred or violence on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, or disability is completely unacceptable on Quizlet, as is creating content that threatens or harasses another person or group. We do not tolerate bullying for any reason.
  • Keep it clean (or make it private) — Remember that Quizlet is meant for students of all ages. If you are studying book quotes that contain swearing or other profanity, songs with sexually suggestive lyrics, slang in another language, or using profanity in any other valid learning context, please exercise your best judgment in making this content public or private. Also, consider making your sets private if you are studying mature subject matter.
  • Stay study-focused — Using Quizlet should be fun and engaging, but our tools are not meant for social networking. We will remove content that is not study-focused, including classes or accounts devoted to chatting with friends, sets resembling blog posts or fan fiction, and spam content that doesn't provide any learning value.
  • Consider the hard work and rights of others — Please do not knowingly post content that infringes on someone else's copyright. You can learn more about our copyright policy here.
  • Honor academic integrity — It's simple: don't cheat. Quizlet is meant for learning, not cheating. Test banks, exam questions, or other confidential course content should not be shared publicly on Quizlet. If you are a teacher or student and have found content that is negatively affecting your course, please report it and we will promptly address the issue.
  • Respect people's privacy (and your own) — User privacy is critically important to us. You can read our full privacy policy here. Do not post your own personally identifiable information, or that of minors or students, on Quizlet.

We depend on our users not only to follow these guidelines, but also to report content or activity that goes against these principles. See our Reporting Inappropriate Content page for more information on how to report specific types of inappropriate content and behavior on Quizlet.

Thank you for supporting our mission and keeping Quizlet a great learning environment for everyone!
