Plagiarism The School of the Art Institute of Chicago prohibits ‘dishonesty such as cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly furnishing false information to the School.’ See ‘Students’ Rights and Responsibilities,’ Student Handbook: www.artic.edu/saic/life/studenthandbook/rights.pdf. One plagiarizes when one presents another’s work as one’s own. It is a form of intellectual theft. Plagiarism need not always be intentional. One can plagiarize even if one does not intend to. The penalty for plagiarizing ranges from a failing grade on the plagiarized assignment to not earning credit for the course. This may also result in some loss of some types of financial aid (for example, a No Credit in a course can lead to a loss of the Presidential Scholarship), and in cases of regular offenses can lead to expulsion from the School. The Faculty Senate Student Life Subcommittee has prepared a 28- page handbook entitled Plagiarism: How to Recognize It and Avoid It. The document is available online on at http://www.artic.edu/saic/programs/resources/library/plagiarism_packet.pdf
