Cheating & Plagiarism: I strictly enforce the Colleges cheating and plagiarism policy and will automatically fail any student on any assignment when a student cheats or plagiarizes on tests or papers. I have zero tolerance and will not accept any excuses. Please see me if you do not understand what plagiarism is. Here is the College definition from the catalog:
The expectation at Bucks County Community College is that the principles of truth and honesty will be rigorously followed in all academic endeavors. This assumes that the person who purports to do the work without unauthorized aids will do all work. In addition, when making use of language and some idea not his or her own, whether quoting them directly or paraphrasing them into his or her own words, the student must attribute the source of the material in some standard form, such as naming the source in the text or offering a footnote.
