PLAGIARISM IS NOT ACCEPTED
If you copy part of a sentence or quantities of sentences, word for word from the internet, a book, magazine, course notes or anywhere else this is considered to be plagiarism.
Plagiarism is considered by most credible academics around the world to be unacceptable; and for this reason ACS cannot issue a formal pass and qualification to anyone who practices plagiarism.
Incidents of plagiarism have damaged the reputations of some colleges and universities. ACS has established a very good academic reputation in part because of the fact that we do not tolerate plagiarism.
Bearing this in mind; it is in the interest of our graduates that we take a firm stand against plagiarism. The value of the studies you pursue, and the qualification you and other students attain, is dependant upon an anti plagiarism policy.
Plagiarism is easily detected by tutors marking papers, through the use of web searches; changes in writing style and tone and depth of technical content.
