Some examples of plagiarism include, but are not
- 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

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.
