Massasoit Community College has an Academic Honesty policy in place which reads in part:
In accepting admission to Massasoit Community College, students also accept the responsibility for maintaining high standards of academic integrity and scholarly practice. Plagiarism - using another person's words or ideas without acknowledgement - is strictly forbidden. This means that dependence on the ideas or language of others in a student's oral, written, technical and artistic work must be properly acknowledged and documented.
The process of "acknowledging and documenting" others' ideas is called the citation process.
