Plagiarism occurs when a writer uses someone else’s language, ideas, or other original material without acknowledging its source. Plagiarism includes unattributed use of any source, in any medium, published or unpublished. Work already submitted for a grade in another course may not be resubmitted unless the professor specifically states otherwise.
Examples of Plagiarism
Some easy steps you can take to make sure you aren't plagiarizing:
1. When in doubt, cite!
2. Ask a peer or the Writing Center to proof your paper.
3. Make sure you are familiar with the citation style for your class.
4. Don't copy or paraphrase, hide the original and use your own words.
5. Remember, at SEU, plagiarism is a serious offense. See the Academic Intergrity Policy below.
