Students sharing academic work
In the spirit of collegiality, students often share their academic work with each other. Where one student uses the work of another student in an assignment or paper that he/she submits for a grade, the original work and student author must be cited. For example, Student A shares an old essay with student B. In his new essay, student B paraphrases a few paragraphs in Student A’s old essay. Student B must cite Student A’s essay in his footnotes or “works cited” section.
