Avoiding Plagiarism

Plagiarism, which is the unacknowledged use of the work or ideas of another person, is a serious violation of academic integrity, and at WASC, we emphasize its utmost significance in your academic career. Plagiarism compromises not only your academic integrity but also the credibility of scholarly work. As a responsible scholar, knowing how to properly attribute sources, cite references, and create original content is an essential skill. By avoiding plagiarism, you not only uphold academic integrity but also enhance your critical thinking, research, and writing skills. WASC is committed to assisting you in mastering this skill and providing the necessary resources to ensure that your academic work reflects the highest standards of excellence and integrity. Join us in embracing this essential component of academic achievement.
