Plagiarism

WJU considers its students to be responsible Christian adults and prefers to treat them as such. A major part of an education at a Christian university is developing and maintaining Christian character, specifically integrity. One jeopardizes that integrity by participating in any kind of deceit; WJU regards such acts as willful plagiarism, cheating, and misrepresentation as deceitful. A student discovered in this kind of activity will not only lose the trust the University has invested in him or her, but will also be subject to discipline: the student will not receive any credit for any assignments that are willfully misrepresented by plagiarism or cheating and will be subject to a personal interview by the Academic Committee to determine if the student may remain in class or in school.
