A Note on Plagiarism:
Plagiarism and all other forms of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and all such cases will be handled according to New York University Policies. The definition of plagiarism that has been adopted by the School of Professional Studies is as follows: “Plagiarism is representing someone else’s work as though it were one’s own. More specifically, plagiarism is to present as one’s own a sequence of words quoted without quotation marks from another writer; a paraphrased passage from another writer’s work; creative images, artwork, or design; or facts or ideas gathered, organized, and reported by someone else, orally and/or in writing and not providing proper attribution. Since plagiarism is a matter of fact, not of the student’s intention, it is crucial that acknowledgement of the sources be accurate and complete. Even where there is no conscious intention to deceive, the failure to make appropriate acknowledgement constitutes plagiarism. Penalties for plagiarism range from failure for a paper or course to dismissal from the University.” You can reach the SPS Statement on Academic Integrity and Plagiarism at
