CCS expects a full commitment to academic integrity from each CCS student. Your signature on your Enrollment Verification Form is your commitment to academic integrity as a student at CCS Online School.
Plagiarism is not just an offense that occurs when you have copied another writer’s exact words and called it your own; it is also an offense when you have closely imitated another writer. This means that you should always read the source, then put the material into your own words—with no more than 5 consecutive words directly from the source.
Please be aware that all CCS instructors utilize a myriad of technologies to check student work for authenticity. If an instructor confirms that a student has plagiarized work in any manner, the student will be subject to consequences determined by CCS administration and may be removed from the course with a failing grade.
