A Note on Plagiarism
According to CMC's Statement of Academic Integrity:
Plagiarism means the use of the thoughts ideas words, phrases or research of another person or source as one's own without explicit acknowledgment. In keeping with this definition, all work, whether written or oral, submitted or presented by students at the College as part of course assignments or for College sponsored extracurricular activities, must be the original work of the student unless otherwise specified by the instructor.
