What is Plagiarism?
Transcript of What is Plagiarism?
Act of Plagiarism: Harvard rejected Blair after learning she used unattributed text from other authors in columns she wrote for her local paper.
RESULT: Harvard obviously rejected Blair's acceptance, and she was no longer able to apply to the school. Also, Blair was asked to share her valedictorian title, but Blair was not taken by this idea, and she sued her school. Blair won in her lawsuit, but both Harvard and her high school students disliked this act, and their backlash was so bad that Blair didn't even attend her graduation! Currently, Blair is looking at applying to other colleges with less severe campuses, and is taking classes at an undisclosed campus. The Harvard Student Handbook says "Current students caught plagiarizing are ordinarily required to withdraw." Harvard also says "Accepted students are always told that admission can be revoked for behavior that questions honesty, maturity, or moral character." As you can learn from Blair's experience, plagiarism is a horrible crime that can cause you embarrassment, harassment, and can even cost you your education. DON'T DO IT! "Plagiarizing."

MSU Billings When academic dishonesty occurs, the instructor must take the appropriate actions. If you get caught plagiarizing you may receive a written or verbal warning, the grade of an "F" on the assignment, or a failing grade for the course. The instructor must discuss the violation with the student prior to the discovery and at the time of the discovery so the student has the opportunity to respond.
