“Assignments that fail to meet their minimum academic or presentation standards, assignments demonstrating partial inconsistency in matters of style of attribution, but consistently attempting to demonstrate credit to sources, or assignments containing several instances of unattributed paraphrases or direct quotations will be considered plagiarized.
Professors who establish that a student has plagiarized may, depending upon the extremity of the case of plagiarism, decide on rejecting the submission and allow for resubmission; fail the assignment not allowing for resubmission; fail the course; and/or recommend further discipline to the appropriate dean.”
