Charleston Southern University Plagiarism Tutorial


Students at CSU are advised to remember the CSU Oath and Honor Pledge and the responsibilities that one agrees to uphold:

The CSU Oath
The CSU community, comprised of students, faculty, and staff, is bonded together through integrity. Joining the CSU community commits each member to behavior that demonstrates this.

As a member of the CSU community:
I will respect the CSU Christian Environment.
I will respect other people and their property. [Emphasis added]
I will display responsibility in my actions. [Emphasis added]
I will practice academic integrity by upholding the CSU Honor Pledge and honor system. [Emphasis added]
I will promote order and safety on campus.

Honor Pledge
I do hereby pledge to uphold the honor of Charleston Southern University by refraining from giving or receiving academic material in a manner not authorized by the instructor, from illegally appropriating the property of others, and from the deliberate falsification of facts. [Emphasis added] I shall do all in my power at all times to create a spirit of honesty and honor for its own sake, both by upholding the Honor System and by helping others to do so. I understand the Honor System and realize that a plea of ignorance will not be accepted.

Plagiarizing is considered academic dishonesty and is a punishable offense with an “Incomplete” grade, “Failure,” and/or placement on your student record.
