  • Honesty is founding principle of our nation and something we should all strive toward.
  • When you use someone else’s words or ideas as your own, you are cheating. Not only are you cheating the other person out of his/her deserved recognition or even money, you are cheating yourself out of the opportunity to learn a new skill. You are cheating yourself out of the opportunity to receive feedback from your instructor on how you can improve.
  • Like theft, plagiarism can have serious consequences from poor grades to incarceration.
  • Sanctions may range from a zero on the assignment, F in the course, suspension for one year, or expulsion from the university.
