More on Academic Integrity

Plagiarizing is just one example of Academic Dishonesty. Other examples include:

  • Letting your work be used by other students (like uploading it to a shared site like Course Hero).
  • Reusing your own paper (self-plagiarizing) for different courses.
  • Inventing or fabricating evidence, sources, or citations.

In addition to being unethical, violating Academic Integrity may lead to disciplinary action. Visit the Student Code of Conduct on Academic Integrity for more details.
