Academic Integrity Policy
Academic dishonesty, in any form, will not be tolerated. The English Department adheres to the following policy for cases of plagiarism:
Plagiarism consists of "copying or imitating the language, ideas and thoughts of another author and passing off the same as one’s original work” (American College Dictionary). It is academic dishonesty and violates the integrity of the academic process. According to Rowan University policy, students committing any act of academic dishonesty may fail the assignment and/or fail the course, at the faculty member’s discretion. All violations of Academic Integrity MUST be reported to the Provost’s office using the RAIV process. Serious cases will be brought to a hearing. In order to avoid plagiarism, students should provide appropriate documentation whenever quoting, paraphrasing, summarizing, or otherwise using the language or ideas of others. Multiple submission (handing in a paper written for one class to another class) is also a form of academic dishonesty and will be treated accordingly. For University policy and procedures, visit the following website: http://www.rowan.edu/provost/policies/AcademicIntegrity.htm
Students have rights as well as responsibilities. If you feel you have been unjustly accused of plagiarism, there is a mechanism for addressing that in a hearing. Again, see the Provost’s website for more information.
