Academic Honesty

Please familiarize yourself with the university policies regarding academic conduct as explained in the Graduate Catalog. You should be aware of the policies regarding academic honesty. Because of cultural and societal differences, etc., there may be some misunderstanding about the distinction between plagiarism and legitimate peer support, or how to properly reference the work of others. If you are unsure about any University of South Florida policy, please check with your instructor/major professor/advisor first. In general, if you submit work for any homework/project/course/thesis, it must properly acknowledge others' contribution to the work, if applicable. For example, cutting and pasting material from websites is not acceptable for completing academic assignments or scholarly reports such as journal articles. Any misrepresentation will be considered as an act of academic dishonesty and dealt with accordingly. Cheating and plagiarism can lead to dismissal from the program and university.
