A Quick Reminder about Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity Policy:

All work submitted is assumed to have been completed by the student. Students are responsible for observing the standards on plagiarism and properly crediting all sources relied on in the composition of their work. Failure to abide by these standards will be reported to the appropriate administrative authorities and may result in loss of credit, revoked access to course(s) and suspension or expulsion from GCA.

Plagiarism

The definition of plagiarism is copying or imitating the language, ideas, and thoughts of another writer and passing them off as your own original work. Specific examples of plagiarism that will not be tolerated are:

  • Copying or rephrasing another student’s work
  • Having someone else write an assignment or rephrasing any part of an assignment (not just proofreading it)
  • Directly copying student aids (for example, Cliff’s Notes), critical sources, or reference materials in part or in whole without acknowledgment
  • Indirect reproduction of student aids, such as Cliff’s Notes, Cole Notes, critical sources, or reference materials by rephrasing ideas borrowed from them without acknowledgment

Source Citation

Many courses require written work in which you will need to cite sources. Any direct quotations from your textbook can simply be cited as (Author, page number). Any quotations from outside sources require full citations, including author, title, publisher, date of publication, and page number. If you’re citing information found on a website, provide the complete web page or site title, URL, author (if known), page number (if applicable), and publication date of the site (if available).

Monitoring

GCA reserves the right to review any material transmitted using GCA instructional computing resources or posted to a GCA instructional computing resource to determine the appropriateness of such material. GCA may review this material at any time, with or without notice. E-mail transmitted via GCA instructional computing resources is not private and may be monitored.
