1. SUBMITTING any part of the same work in two (2) or more assignments, even in different or repeated courses, without the expressed consent of the professor(s).
2. FALSIFYING (faking) information, class attendance (including signing in for another student, using another student’s user name and password to submit work on his/her behalf), etc.
3. PLAGIARIZING or using another’s ideas (student, Internet, book, etc.) without giving the source (citation) or using another’s unique words or phrases without quotation marks and a citation.
4. CHEATING on an exam, assignment, etc. including group work not expressly approved by the professor.
5. HELPING another student in any way with an act of Academic Dishonesty.
6. DISSEMBLING or not being fully honest in any investigation of Academic Dishonesty.
Self-plagiarism is possible and it's just as serious.
Self-plagiarism, or "double-dipping," is deception and goes against the core principles of ethical writing. Papers are assigned for you to demonstrate what you have learned in a particular class. If you reuse a paper you wrote for a previous class, you are not demonstrating new learning.
Examples of self-plagiarism:
