Plagiarism is claiming responsibility for someone else's work or idea. When it comes to plagiarizing, just say no!
The University has strict consequences regarding plagiarism. You might earn a zero on your assignment, or you could fail your entire course. A second offense automatically ensures you will receive a zero for the course and you may face suspension, and after the third offense, you will automatically be suspended for one or more years. These details can be found in the DelVal Student Policy Guide.
