Academic Integrity Guidelines

Summit University asks its students to abide by guidelines of academic integrity when completing assigned work. Written work is a significant part of our assessment process. When submitting written work and forum responses, you must use your original words. Copying the words, ideas or images of others (from web sites, books, other students, etc.), and representing them as your own without citing the source is considered plagiarism. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and is subject to sanctions ranging from a warning to earning a zero for the assignment. Plagiarism can also result in dismissal from the program.

Citations are required for all quoted and paraphrased material that comes from an outside source. Citation guidelines and instructions are posted in Moodle for registered students.
