How do I learn more about plagiarism?
Plagiarism occurs when one person presents the work of another person as his or her own. It is a serious academic offense that may lead to a failing grade on an assignment or failing an entire course.
To learn more about plagiarism and how to avoid it, use the University Libraries' online plagiarism tutorial.
The university's Student Handbook includes a section about plagiarism, available at www.usm.edu/student-handbook/plagiarism.
