    What will happen?

    I've been charged with plagiarism at the university of phoenix .

    I am regretful of my actions, and am shocked that I made the decision to plagiarize on an assignment that only counted for 2% of my total grade.

    I am terrified at the potential consequences of my actions, and am wondering what the punishment for this moment of stupidity will be.

    I know... It was stupid... Flame if you wish, but please tell me what will happen.

    Try to find the plagiarism policy at University of Phoenix . Some universities have harsher punishments than others when it comes to plagiarism. The worst that could happen is that you are dismissed from University of Phoenix .

    The faculty member will submit a report. They will have the option of giving you an F for the assignment or an F for the course. UOP will have on-file that you've been charged with plagiarism.

    On occasion, I have (as UOP faculty) gone ahead and allowed the student to resubmit if it seems as though the plagiarism was not malicious.

    I would suggest you write the faculty member and "postrate" yourself humbly and appeal to him/her to let you resubmit even at a lower grade if necessary. Tell him/her that you have seen the error of your ways and have learned your lesson well and promise it will never ever happen again. See if there is some mercy.

    Some schools may note your academic dishonesty on your transcript.

    No sympathy from me. None at all. Sorry for my bluntness. If the decision were up to me, I would expel you from the school, unless, of course, I wanted your tuition dollars.

    I would check the schools policy. I have caught students and gave them the chance to resubmit in their own words. I just had a more watchful eye on them for the rest of the class.

    Technically, that is not allowed at UOP as it is viewed the same as extra credit (which is not allowed as a practice).

    This would seem to be good advise, assuming it can all be said in truth. Otherwise you are twice a liar.

    Actually, UOP has been open to this if the person has no history of questionable submissions. I recently turned in a student for 100% plagiarism on a paper. After discussions with the student and faculty support, the decision was made to extend to the student an opportunity to submit another paper. I agreed to do this provided that the paper was penalized 40 points. This was agreeable to all parties.

    Interesting, I have had the same scenario and was told that second submissions are extra credit and not allowed. I guess my question would be how could a student turn in a 100% plagiarized paper and it not be considered a blatant attempt to plagiarize? In my classes a 100% paper would be an automatic fail for the course. Would you treat four 25% plagiarized papers the same? No history of questionable submissions in your class maybe, but I guarantee that the student with a 100% plagiarized paper has done it before and will continue to do it again if it only costs him/her a 40 point penalty.

    If it's the first offense and a low stakes assignment, you may get off with a warning and a grade reduction.

    Here's something, one of the few things, that I know know to be true in this world.

    Good people do bad things and bad people do good things.

    Viewing a single event, be it good or bad, does not allow you to define a person as being good or bad. Life is more complicated than that.

    Here's the big question: How many bad things can a good person do before they become a bad person? Somewhere a line is crossed.

    You can not continue to do bad things and also consider yourself to be a good person. That's all.
