The following are some examples of plagiarism, but by no means is it an exhaustive list: Copying another personâ€™s actual words without the use of quotation marks and footnotes attributing the words to their source. Presenting another personâ€™s ideas or theories in your own words without acknowledging the source. Using information that is not common knowledge without acknowledging the source. Failing to acknowledge collaborators on homework and laboratory assignments. Internet Plagiarism includes submitting downloaded term papers or parts of term papers, paraphrasing or copying information from the Internet without citing the source, and â€œcutting and pastingâ€ from various sources without proper attribution. Plagiarism carries a range of penalties commensurate with severity of the infraction. The instructor may, for example, require the work to be redone, reduce the course grade, fail the student in the course, or refer the case to the Faculty-Student Disciplinary Committee. Cases referred to that committee could result in suspension or expulsion from the college.
