Plagiarism: Self-Plagiarism

Learn how to recognize and avoid plagiarism.



Self-plagiarism happens when you submit your own paper in more than one course without permission of the instructors.

How is this plagiarism? An important part of academic honesty is that your writing should accurately reflect what you learned in a specific class. The point of college is to acquire knowledge, and your education is an investment in you. Don't cheat yourself.
