Academic Conduct

Plagiarism -- presenting someone else’s ideas as your own, either verbatim or recast in your own words---is a serious academic offense with serious consequences. Please familiarize yourself with the discussion of plagiarism in SCampus in Part B, Section 11, “Behavior Violating University Standards” Other forms of academic dishonesty are equally unacceptable. See additional information in SCampus and university policies on scientific misconduct,
