Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86Academic honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence Park University will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, papers, homework or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades, suspended and/or expelled from Park University.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85Plagiarism is the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one's original work. This sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation or sources should consult their instructors. Students are responsible for the work they turn in.
