The University of West Georgia Department of English has
to help combat the problem of plagiarism by
clarifying what plagiarism is and offering
suggestions as to how it might be discouraged,
avoided, and detected.
Each incidence of
plagiarism is subject to review and consideration by the instructor, and is
subject to a range of penalties including but not limited to
failing the assignment,
failing the course, and
referral to the
review board (which may ultimately result in
the expulsion, suspension, or
disciplinary removal of the student from the university).
In order to facilitate the prevention and detection of
plagiarism the Department of English and the University of West Georgia will
maintain records of plagiarized assignments and those who prepare and/or submit them.
