The Department of English takes cases of plagiarism very seriously and deals severely with students who have been found to have plagiarised their work. Students who have been caught plagiarising will receive an 'F' grade on the assignment concerned and, depending on the severity of the case, may receive an 'F' for the entire course. In the event of repeated offences, student will be placed on academic probation. In some courses students will be required to submit their assignments through 'Turnitin', a computer programme which automatically checks for plagiarism. In cases where you are unsure what constitutes plagiarism or whether or not you have provided attribution for your sources correctly, you should consult your course instructor or academic advisor.
