Plagiarism is academic misconduct.
"In brief, any act which represents work not one’s own as one’s own is an academically dishonest act. If a student is ever in doubt about an issue of academic dishonesty, or has any hesitation about a contemplated course of action, the student should consult his or her instructors. The penalties for academic dishonesty can be very painful and can affect the entire educational experience at Illinois Central College."
