  • Read the Universitys policies on plagiarism,
    collaboration, and examinations. Ignorance is no
    excuse.

  • Read course outlines, which almost always
    include these policies. Read your Student
    Handbook and the Undergraduate Calendar.

    investing in a current edition of the required
    style guide or citation manual, or by visiting
    the Leddy Library in person or online.

35
NUMBER FIVE!
  • When writing assignments, do your own work,
    and cite to ALL outside sources used, whether
    quoting, paraphrasing, or borrowing ideas.
    Referencing your sources enhances your work.

    be attributed. Before using Internet-based
    material, evaluate the credibility of the website.

    in dishonest behaviour or ask you to assist them
    in doing so. Dont let others use you.
