Academic Honesty Pledge

According to the Carroll Community College Catalog, students are required to follow the standards of the Code of Integrity and Academic Honesty.

"Academic honesty means using one's own thoughts and materials in writing papers, . . .  (and) also includes the proper citation of sources of information.  Students are expected to give full credit for the borrowed words and ideas of others."

Instructors will ask students to sign the following pledge regarding the originality of their work:

"I pledge that this work is entirely my own and I have neither given nor received any unauthorized help in its completion"
