Cheating includes but is not limited to (1) using or attempting to use unauthorized materials to aid in achieving a better grade on a component of a class; (2) the falsification or invention of any information, including citations, on an assigned exercise; and/or (3) helping or attempting to help another in an act of cheating or plagiarism. Plagiarism is presenting the words or ideas of another person as if they were your own. Examples of plagiarism are (1) submitting an assignment as if it were one’s own work when, in fact, it is a least partly the work of another; (2) submitting a work that has been purchased or otherwise obtained from an Internet source or another service; and (3) incorporating the words or ideas of an author into one’s paper without giving the author due credit.
