MERCY COLLEGE’S ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY:

“Students are expected to submit their own work for all course assignments. Academic integrity is of particular importance in the Mercy learning environment. For all data, texts, or other information reported, quoted, or otherwise used in student work, the sources from which the data, texts, or other information were obtained (including, but not limited to, persons, books, and articles) must be cited. Without appropriate citation, the use of such data, texts, or other information is considered plagiarism and has serious consequences. These consequences include, but are not limited to, a failing grade for the assignment or course, as well as possible expulsion from the College.

All materials entered in public conferences and communication with College personnel should adhere to standards of civility. Any communication that embarrasses, harasses, or causes concern will be referred to the appropriate School Dean.” [footnoteRef:1] [1: Mercy College, “Student Handbook, 2014-2015” (Mercy College, 2014), 25, https://www.mercy.edu/student-affairs/sites/www.mercy.edu.student-affairs/files/basicpage/documents/Student-Handbook-9-16-2014.pdf.]

PLAGIARISM:

“Plagiarism, which is the appropriation of words or ideas of another without recognition of the source, is a form of cheating.”[footnoteRef:2] You must do your own work and make sure that your work is not being plagiarized by others. Committing plagiarism could result in a “0” for the assignment, an “F” for this course and/or possible dismissal or suspension from the College. It is also considered plagiarism if you turn in the same paper for multiple classes. In other words – do your own work. [2: Mercy College, “Student Handbook, 2014-2015,” 26.]
