Plagiarism. “Plagiarism is intentionally or knowingly presenting the work of another as one's own (i.e., without proper acknowledgement of the source). The sole exception to the requirement of acknowledging sources is when the ideas, information, etc., are common knowledge. In the context of academic work, the standards for acknowledging sources are very high. An author must give due credit whenever quoting another person's actual words, whenever using another person's idea, opinion or theory, and whenever borrowing facts, statistics or illustrative material, unless the information is common knowledge.” (From UNCC Academic Integrity Code)


Typical Examples of Plagiarism:  Submitting as one's own work, the work of a commercial writing service; directly quoting from a source, such as a book, journal article or the internet, without citation; paraphrasing or summarizing another's work without acknowledging the source; using facts, figures, graphs, charts or information without acknowledgement of the source).” Copying another student paper or using your own paper that has been used in another course. (From UNCC Academic Integrity Code –see it for details)



The work that I am submitting is entirely my own, has not been copied from other sources or other students, and has not been used for another course. I am aware that violations of the UNCC Academic Integrity Code can result in severe penalties such as failing the course or expulsion from the University.
