    Default Falsify, manipulate, fake

    1) Even though students are being required to swipe their ID card before attending classes, still they can falsify their attendance .

    Can I use fake , monipulate instead of falsify. Which verb should I use?

    2) Students should park in a new parking lot which is far away from their classes.
    Can I say which is far-off from their classes. Or, which is far out of students way.

    Thank you so much for taking your time to answer my questins.

    I think falsify is the best choice here. Note the slight amendments in my version of your sentence.

    2) Students should park in a new parking lot which is far away from their classes.

    Students should park in a new parking lot which is a long way from their classrooms.

    I don't think far-off sounds at all natural. You could say that the parking lot is a long way out of their way.

    Thank you so much for taking your the time to answer my questions.
     
    See above.
