Because of the problem of plagiarism that has been growing over
the last decade until it is now at plague status, all submissions to
the college will be subjected to analysis to determine if
plagiarism is present in the submitted work.
First offense: The student will be informed of the plagiarism and for the first offense will be required to write and submit a Plagiarism Paper. In it they will be required to research the topic, "plagiarism" so that in the future (1) they will understand what it is, (2) the dangers of it, (3) and how to avoid it. After researching the topic, student will write and submit a 700 - 1,000 word paper on plagiarism, addressing those three sub-topics, and include 3 reference works accessed while researching the paper. Student will input the paper in the "Research Paper" field on the form and include one reference in each of the three reference fields on the form. There is a plethora of online sources addressing this topic.
Second offense: A second offense will result in a 30 day suspension. When the suspension is over the student will be allowed to continue their studies but will be on probation for 6 months.
Third offense: A third offense will result in the student being permanently dismissed from the student body.
If you do not know what plagiarism is, research it so you can avoid it.
