Plagiarism is defined as a student’s submission of word-for-word passages or paraphrases of others’ published or unpublished, electronic or paper, words or ideas, without proper acknowledgement of the original source. Taking the words and/or ideas of another person without acknowledgment is considered fraud and is a violation of the student Code of Conduct with regard to academic dishonesty. Students may not submit their own previously written work without modification and instructor permission. Doing so is also considered academic dishonesty.
See the university’s Academic Integrity policy in this catalog for the consequences of academic dishonesty.
