As commonly defined, plagiarism consists of passing off as one‘s own the ideas, words, writings, etc., which belong to another. In accordance with this definition, you are committing plagiarism if you copy the work of another person and turn it in as your own, even if you should have permission of that person. Plagiarism is one of the worst academic sins, for the plagiarist destroys the trust among colleagues without which research cannot be safely communicated. The Aggie Code of Honor states: "An Aggie does not lie, cheat, or steal or tolerate those who do." http:l/wwwtamu.edu/aggiehonor/ Upon accepting admission to Texas A&M University, a student immediately assumes a commitment to uphold the Honor Code, to accept responsibility for learning, and to follow the philosophy and rules of the Honor System. Students will be required to state their cemmitment on examinations, research papers, and other academic work. Ignorance of the rules does not exclude any member of the TAMU community from the requirements or the processes of the Honor System. Anyone who violates the University rules on academic honesty will receive an "F" for the course and additional sanctions as described in the University Regulations. If you have any questions regarding plagiarism and academic dishonesty, please consult the latest issue of the Texas A&M University Student Rules, under the section "Scholastic Dishonesty". Or, see http:l/www.tamu.edu/aggiehonorl.
