Avoiding Plagiarism

Guilford defines plagiarism broadly as presenting the interpretations, wording, images or original conceptions of others as one’s own without appropriate acknowledgment. Individual faculty members determine what constitutes “appropriate acknowledgment” within the context of their courses, either by specifically stating requirements or by acknowledging the standard practice within a given discipline. The charge of plagiarism applies to any and all academic work whether done inside or outside of the classroom and whether submitted as a rough draft or a final product (Guilford College Academic Honor Code, Office of the Academic Dean).
