Plagiarism: What is it? 

Some examples of plagiarism include, but are not limited to: 

  • Copying a direct quotation without using quotation marks around the information
  • Submitting incorrect citation information for words or ideas that are not one’s own
  • Copying someone else's assignment, or sections of it, and submitting it as one’s own
  • Copying or reusing your own work done for a different class and without proper citation
FAU outlines how it handles plagiarism in its Honor Code for students, and each FAU academic unit expands on it. Students accused of plagiarism may get a bad grade, receive a failing grade for a course, or face suspension or expulsion.

The best way to avoid plagiarism is to properly cite all sources of information! Cite where your information was found within the body of your paper and in the works cited page.
