UWF Plagiarism Policy

The UWF Student Handbook, Code of Student Conduct, Academic Misconduct, states: “Plagiarism. The act of representing the ideas, words, creations or work of another as one’s own.” Plagiarism combines theft with fraud, and the penalty is correspondingly severe: failure for the assignment and, in some cases, for the entire course. At the instructor’s discretion, she/he may recommend that the student be suspended from the university. Ignorance of the rules about plagiarism is no excuse for it, and carelessness is just as bad as purposeful violation. Students who have plagiarized have cheated themselves out of the experience of being responsible members of the academic community and have cheated their classmates by pretending to contribute original ideas.

For complete information regarding this policy and strategies for avoiding plagiarism, download the Online UWF Plagiarism Policy Brochure (PDF).
