What is plagiarism?
According to the Undergraduate Catalog of William Paterson University, it defines plagiarism as "the copying from a book, article, notebook, video, or other source material, whether published or unpublished, without proper credit through the use of quotation marks, footnotes, and other customary means of identifying sources, or passing off as one's own the ideas, words, writings, programs, and experiments of another, whether or not such actions are intentional or unintentional."

It further describes that "plagiarism will also include submitting, without the consent of the professor, an assignment already tendered for academic credit in another course." (Undergraduate Catalog, William Paterson University, 2002)
