Plagiarism Policy and Procedure

Plagiarism and Ethical Issues: Plagiarism is the copying from a book, article, notebook, video, or other source material, whether published or unpublished, without proper credit through the use of quotation marks, footnotes, and other customary means of identifying sources, or passing off as one’s own the ideas,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 such actions are intentional or unintentional. Plagiarism also includes submitting, without the consent of the professor, an assignment already tendered for academic credit in another course. Plagiarism is a serious offense with serious consequences, which may include failing the assignment, failing the course, disciplinary action, or even expulsion from the University.
