Plagiarism is a form of cheating, by representing someone else’s work as your own or using someone else’s
work (another student or author) without acknowledging it with a reference. This is a serious breach of the
Academic Regulations and will be dealt with accordingly. Students found to have plagiarized can be
excluded from the program.
Plagiarism occurs whenever you do any of the following things without acknowledging the original source:
Copy information from any source (including the study guide, books, newspapers, the internet)
Use another person’s concepts or ideas
Summarize or paraphrase another person’s work.
How do I avoid plagiarism?
To ensure you are not plagiarizing, you must acknowledge with a reference whenever you:
use another person’s ideas, opinions or theory
include any statistics, graphs or images that have been compiled or created by another person or
organization
Paraphrase another’s written or spokenword.
What are the penalties?
The penalties for plagiarism are:
Deduction of marks,
A mark of zero for the assignment or the unit, or
Exclusion from the program.
Plagiarism is dealt with on a case-by-case basis and the penalties will reflect the seriousness of the
breach.
Please note claiming that you were not aware of need to reference is no excuse.
