Duplicate Use of Written Work

A paper submitted to meet the requirements of a particular course is assumed to be work completed for that course; the same paper, or substantially similar papers, may not be used to meet the requirements of two different courses, in the same or different terms, without the prior consent of each faculty member involved. Students incorporating similar material in more than one paper are required to confirm each professor’s expectations in advance.

If the director suspects a student of plagiarism, cheating, or duplicate use of written work, s/he will gather the evidence, including a meeting with the student, and determine with the instructor whether or not a case should proceed. If it is decided that there is a case, the evidence will be forwarded to the appropriate administrators/faculty on the Vermont campus.
