Academic Honesty
All academic work should be your own. Academic dishonesty (plagiarism and cheating) may result in automatic failure of the
assignment or the course itself, and you will be referred to the Academic Affairs Office for suspension or expulsion proceedings.
You are plagiarizing when you:
1. Copy material from a source without using quotation marks and proper citation.
2. Follow the movement of the source, substituting words and sentences but keeping its meaning, without citing it.
3. Lift phrases or terms from a source and embed them in your own prose without using quotation marks and proper
citation.
4. Borrow ideas (that are not common knowledge) form a source without proper citation.
5. Turn in a paper wholly or partially written by someone else.
The complete statement on Plagiarism, Cheating and Dishonesty can be found in the Campus Life Handbook, page 33, at the
following web link: http://www.otterbein.edu/public/CampusLife/HealthAndSafety/StudentConduct.aspx.

eight hours per week of out-of-class work.
