Avoiding Plagiarism

UNC Charlotte students should understand and abide by the University’s policy on academic integrity.

What is Plagiarism?

  • "In an instructional setting, plagiarism occurs when a writer deliberately uses someone else’s language, ideas, or other original (not common-knowledge) material without acknowledging its source."
  • "This definition applies to texts published in print or online, to manuscripts, and to the work of other student writers."
  • "A student who attempts (even if clumsily) to identify and credit his or her source, but who misuses a specific citation format or incorrectly uses quotation marks or other forms of identifying material taken from other sources, has not plagiarized. Instead, such a student should be considered to have failed to cite and document sources appropriately."
