University Policy on Academic Honesty:
Plagiarism and cheating are violations of the Student Discipline Code (see Appendix of the CSUSB Catalog of Programs) and may be dealt with by both the instructor and the Coordinator of Student Conduct. Plagiarism is the presentation as one's own, the ideas and writing of another. Plagiarism is academically dishonest and subjects the offending student to penalties up to and including expulsion. Candidates must make appropriate acknowledgments of the original source where material written or compiled by another is used.
