Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. All published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition. Plagiarism may be intentional or reckless, or unintentional. Under the regulations for examinations, intentional or reckless plagiarism is a disciplinary offense.

Any student found to have committed any acts of dishonesty, including by not limited to: cheating, plagiarism, or other forms of academic dishonesty is subject to disciplinary sanctions outlined in Article IV.B of the Student Handbook. You may be given a failing grade for plagiarizing or even dismissed from school. It is serious, and nowadays there are numerous electronic tools used by your instructors to detect it.
