             Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else's ideas or words as your own. You plagiarize deliberately if you copy a sentence from a book and pass it off as your writing; if you summarize or paraphrase someone else's ideas without acknowledging your debt; or if you buy a term paper to hand in as your own. You plagiarize accidentally if you carelessly forget quotation marks around another writer's works or mistakenly omit a source citation for another's idea because you are aware of the need to acknowledge the idea. Whether deliberate or accidental, plagiarism is a serious and often punishable offense. .
             In Albany State University, the first violation of the academic code of conduct will receive a grade of "F" in the course in which the offense occurred. The second violation will receive a grade of "F" in the course and will be suspended from the University for the following semester. The third violation will receive a grade of "F" in the course and will be expelled from the University at the end of the semester.
             At Georgia State University, penalties to be imposed in incidents of academic dishonesty are classified as academic or disciplinary. Academic penalties include such sanctions as assignment of a failing grade for a particular course requirement, or for the course itself, or for other tests or program assignments. The faculty member sets them. Disciplinary sanctions can be sought in addition to those considered academic and could include, but are not limited to, the following penalties: suspension, expulsion, transcript annotations. Disciplinary penalties can be requested by the faculty member, in consultation with the chair; the University Senate Committee on Student Discipline must review them and the provost sets them. .
             In conclusion, with all of the effects of plagiarism, you would think the thought of doing it would make people stop, but it is a easier way out of an essay, quiz, or test, so people are going to still pursue plagiarism.
