Plagiarism, the presentation of someone else's words or ideas as your own, is an act of fraud. There are few issues in your academic pursuits that are more serious and carry harsher consequences than plagiarism. This module is designed to help you understand what constitutes plagiarism and how to avoid it in your own writing.
The pursuit of scholarly activity, free from dishonesty, fraud, or deception, is essential to the mission of the College and to the full exercise of academic freedom. Cheating, plagiarism, fabrication of information or citations, and other forms of unethical conduct compromise the quality of education and will not be tolerated. Infractions may result in penalties or sanctions beyond those imposed by an individual faculty member.
