Cheating is not acceptable behavior regardless of the form it takes. Students guilty of cheating on a test or homework assignment will be given a zero for that test or assignment. Plagiarism on a report or term paper will result in a zero for that report or term paper. On the second
plagiarism /cheating offense in a class in any given semester, the student will lose all credit and receive an “F” for that class. To plagiarize is defined as, “to steal and use the ideas and writings of another as one’s own, to use another’s production without crediting the source, to commit literary theft, or to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.”
