Academic Integrity

Plagiarism

The practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own. An example of plagiarism is to use creative works of another, without appropriate acknowledgment of the author or source.

Collusion

Secret or illegal cooperation in order to deceive others. Collusion is the presentation of an assignment as one’s own which is in fact the result in whole or in part of unauthorized collaboration with other person(s). Collusion involves the cooperation of two or more individuals in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct.

Both plagiarism and collusion constitute cheating. Disciplinary action will be taken against students who engage in plagiarism and collusion.
