It is very important to be honest in your academic and professional work. Bay College takes academic dishonestly seriously and being dishonest could result in expulsion from the college Talk with your instructor if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Plagiarism is presenting or submitting someone else's work (words or ideas),
intentionally or unintentionally, as your own. This is considered to be a form
of cheating and may be subject to disciplinary action.

There are various forms of plagiarism including:

  • Copying: using the same, or very similar, words to the original text
    (whether in a book, journal, website or any other source) without
    either acknowledging the source or using quotation marks. This also
    applies to images, pictures and melodies.
  • Paraphrasing: changing a few words and phrases from the original
    but retaining too much of the original structure and expressions
  • Collusion: working with others but passing off the work as your own
    individual work
  • Duplication: submitting work for one module which had been
    prepared for another
