There are many ways to avoid plagiarism while attending college. Make sure to correctly cite all sources that were used in your work, whether the information you used was paraphrased or quoted. If you are not sure of whether to reference a source, do it anyways. It is better to reference a source and find out later down the road that you shouldn’t have than to find out you have been accused of plagiarism.
