Which of the following is NOT a potential consequence of plagiarism?
A. Academic warning
B. Academic probation
C. Failing the course
D. Cancellation from program
im confused between C & D
I don't think any of those answers are correct. In the college where I taught, the first three were used every time a student plagiarized; he/she unfortunately didn't believe plagiarism rules would be enforced.
I am not sure what 'cancellation' means here, though. Students aren't 'cancelled,' so it doesn't make much sense.
I don't know what the answer is "supposed" to be, but all of those are potential consequences of plagiarism.
I knew a college freshman who inadvertently plagiarized and was suspended from school for a semester. She appealed and that decision was repealed -- but it was touch and go for a while.
