Plagiarism: Home

This guide explores plagiarism and academic honesty at MCC.


Many professors require students to upload their papers to this site for plagiarism checks prior to submittal.

Check out these student tutorials if you are new to this process.

Academic Honesty

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.
