Plagiarism

All Bradley students must be aware of plagiarism and its consequences. The Student Handbook offers the university's definition of cheating and plagiarism. Students are responsible for understanding the policies in this document.

The Undergraduate Catalog also defines plagiarism and provides more information about breaches of academic integrity, including processes for students who wish to appeal any charges of plagiarism.

Students are required to complete the Plagiarism Awareness Module and Quiz. A registration hold will prevent students from enrolling in future classes if this quiz is not passed.
