The Department of Classics takes academic integrity seriously. Instructors will presume that all students enrolled in its courses have read Regulation 1 of the Academic Regulations in the Arts and Science Calendar on "Academic Integrity".
The Department of Classics views plagiarism as a very serious matter. The penalty for it may range from a mark of zero on the assignment or test in question, plus an additional mark penalty, to expulsion from the University. Please note that departures from the principles of academic integrity include such practices as submitting the same piece of work in more than one course without the permission of the instructor(s) and the buying or selling of term papers or assignments and submitting them as one's own.
You should always identify the sources of ideas, words, and phrases that come from someone else. If you are in doubt, please ask your instructor.
To avoid plagiarism please ensure that you read and understand Regulation 1 of the Academic Regulations (above) and the statements on plagiarism from the Department of English and the Writing Centre.
Information from Internet sources is subject to the same rules and guidelines. Please be especially careful in your use of any information from these sources, as there are many websites that are unreliable and erroneous.
