Plagiarism

There are three common types of plagiarism you need to be aware of as a student:

Recycling a paper, “double-dipping,” self-plagiarism: reusing a paper you have written for a previous course

Copying directly from a source without proper quotations or paraphrasing: when you try to pass something off as your own work

Not using proper citations

According to the Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty Handbook:

Your paper should be composed of at least 80 percent of your own original thought, not “borrowed, paraphrased, [or] quoted” material pulled from the Internet, articles, journals, books, etc. Use your thoughts, not someone else’s!
