Each college and campus has specific procedures for dealing with allegations of plagiarism – you can see the links to specific academic honesty pages for details for your college or campus.
There, a number of sanctions could be imposed if the student is found responsible of a violation of academic integrity. Some examples of penalties include a zero for the assignment, a reduction in course grade or a failing grade for the course.
University disciplinary sanctions may also be assigned and are reserved for the most serious breaches of academic integrity, particularly if a student has been found responsible for a previous violation of academic integrity. For more information on the University procedures related to academic integrity, see Policy G-9: Academic Integrity.
