Plagiarism detection


Notre Dame has a strong Undergraduate Academic Code of Honor; students receive an orientation to it before they arrive on campus. As a precondition for course registration, all undergraduates pledge:

As a member of the Notre Dame community, I will not participate in or tolerate academic dishonesty.

The Kaneb Center strongly urges instructors to address plagiarism before it becomes a problem. Take a positive approach; contact us about designing assignments in ways that encourage academic honesty.

Technology is available which can check for plagiarism in student work. If a Notre Dame instructor believes this is necessary, the Provost’s Office can provide an individual license to at university expense.
