Plagiarism and Academic Integrity

Students engaging in acts of plagiarism, collusion, or other forms of academic dishonesty will receive 0 points on the assignment in question and will not be granted the opportunity to redo the assignment. This effectively terminates that particular “progress path” through the course work. Additionally, the incident in question will be reported to the appropriate parties within the Department of English, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the University.

Academic Integrity Statement:

We all have the legal and ethical responsibility not to engage in any form of academic dishonesty. Academic dishonesty includes (but is not limited to) the following:

  • Academic dishonesty includes giving, receiving, or using unauthorized aid on any academic work, which includes downloading work from the Internet.
  • Plagiarism, a form of academic dishonesty, includes the copying of language, structure, or ideas of another and attributing the work to one’s own efforts.
  • All academic work submitted for grading contains an implicit pledge and may contain, at the request of the instructor, an explicit pledge by the student that no unauthorized aid has been received.
  • Academic dishonesty includes attempts to copy, edit, or delete computer files that belong to another person without permission of the file owner.

Reusing work from a previous course or using work from another course you are currently taking, without first receiving instructor approval, also constitutes a violation of Academic integrity.
