Allen students are expected to practice academic honesty in all coursework. Using or submitting someone else's work as your own is unethical, dishonest and may even be illegal. Learning how to practice academic honesty is a core part of all academic classes. Your instructor will guide you through the process of avoiding the serious consequences of plagiarism. Credit must be given to sources in all oral and written assignments. If you are unsure about how to use outside source information, ask your instructor or check with the Writing Center.
“To steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source.”
