Academic Dishonesty

Plagiarism is one example of academic dishonesty. But with the increasing popularity of remote education, studious untruths have become more omnipresent. Reusing an assignment you already submitted for another class could qualify under this category. By law, anything someone writes, even on their personal drive, is protected by copyright. Using anything that has been written by another person without citing the original source and/or using quotations can be deemed plagiarism. Even rewriting or rephrasing work without the exact word use may be considered a violation. Along with copying someone else’s words without citing the source, here are other forms of plagiarism: 

  • Taking an idea from someone else and using it without citation
  • Reusing your own work, or that of another student, from a different class
  • Citing non-existent or fake sources
  • Copying work of several people and combining them together so the end result seems to be an original thought or piece
  • Changing keywords or paraphrasing the text of others without appropriate citation

Ultimately, academic dishonesty can be in the form of cheating, fabrication or false information, damage or theft of intellectual property, creating an unfair advantage for oneself, and alerting university documents. Lying to a professor or working with others to plagiarize an assignment or cheat on an exam could also put you in an academic dishonesty situation. If you have been accused of any of these kinds of offenses, we urge you to contact our plagiarism attorney without hesitation.
