    I saw an ad that the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College (TCICC) was offering an associate degree in criminal justice online. Being curious, I decided to check out the program. While reading the program objectives, something caught my attention:

    Be prepared to enter a Bachelor’s Degree program in Criminal Justice without any additional academic preparation.

    I recognized that wording from my alma mater, Ashworth College. Upon comparing both programs' objectives, I realized they were identical, except for a few instances where TCICC edited American to reflect TCI and English (British). They also removed Ashworth from their last objective.

    I wonder if they have permission to do this. Is permission needed? Isn't this plagiarism?
