Definition of plagiarism

Plagiarism is representing someone else's words or ideas as your own. It is a form of academic dishonesty and it is not tolerated. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to: handing in someone else's work as your own; taking credit for ideas tat are not your own; including in your work phrases, sentences, paragraphs or any text from a book, article, or web site without marking the text as a quotation and citing the source; and paraphrasing text from a source. The UofL History Department follows the College of Arts and Sciences policies regarding plagiarism and academic dishonesty. Any student found to have plagiarized on any assignment may receive a failing grade for the semester. In addition, a letter describing the student's infraction and the penalty imposed may be forwarded to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education and added to the student's permanent file for consideration in actions taken by the Committee on Academic Discipline. Repeat offenders may be expelled from the University. For further explanation, see "The Code of Student Conduct" and the"The Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities" in the Student Handbook and the Catalog of the UofL College of Arts and Sciences.
