Three common types of plagiarism you need to be aware of as a student:
Recycling a paper; “double-dipping”; self-plagiarism: Reusing a paper you have written for a previous course
Copying directly from a source without proper quotations or paraphrasing: When you try to pass something off as your own work
Not using proper citations
According to the Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty Handbook:
Your paper should have at least 80% of your own original thought, not “borrowed, paraphrased [or] quoted” from material pulled from the Internet, articles, journals, books, etc. Your thoughts, not someone else’s!
