Plagiarism is considered academic misconduct. Examples of plagiarism:
claiming authorship of a piece of writing or artwork created by someone else
making use of ideas obtained from other sources (including classmates) without clearly acknowledging the source
incorporating verbatim passages or elements from an existing work into one’s own work without quotation marks or otherwise clear indication of authorship.
"When a faculty member suspects that a student is responsible for academic misconduct, the faculty member will refer the case to the Office of the Dean of the College for referral to the Student Conduct Committee or administrative action. The student and the faculty member are entitled to a Committee hearing upon request by either party."
"If the student is found to be responsible for academic misconduct, a disciplinary sanction ranging from a warning to expulsion will be assigned. The faculty member, in consultation with the Committee or appropriate administrator, will decide upon a grading penalty up to a failing grade in the course. After receiving a sanction, the student may not elect the Pass/No Pass option in that course. In the case of a student who has already chosen the Pass/No Pass option, the Registrar will rescind that option. If assigned an F in the course, the student cannot withdraw from the course."
