Academic Integrity

Plagiarism Resources

What is Plagiarism?

The deliberate use and appropriation of another’s work without any indication of the source and the representation of such work as the student’s own. Any student who fails to give credit for ideas, expressions or materials taken from another source, including internet sources, is guilty of plagiarism. Any student helping another to plagiarize may be found guilty of academic misconduct (FIU Misconduct Policies & Procedures).
