Plagiarism Information

HU Student Handbook, Statement on Plagiarism

In writing papers, reports, and summaries for your University courses, you will be held responsibile for knowing the difference between legitimate and illegitimate use of published source material.  Illegitimate use is called Plagiarism, and at Huntington University, the penalty of plagiarism may range from a grade of F on the work in question to failure of the course.  Intentional plagiarism is a much more serious offense than "unconscious" plagiarism, although the student is obligated to avoid both (p.39).
