Students are guilty of academic dishonesty when they
- Secretly arrange to have an entire document written for them by other individuals and then submit the ghost-written material to their instructor.
- Copy all or part of passages from a work written by others without properly attributing sources.
- Receive unacknowledged assistance from others.
- Submit the same paper to multiple courses (without permission).
