Is collaborating with someone else on my paper plagiarism?

Back Back to About Plagiarism

C0CC300 is a workshop course. You can expect that your writing will be read and commented upon by your peers. Your instructor plans for and expects such collaboration in the classroom. If you are receiving help outside of class from a tutor or a friend, discuss your situation with me to avoid any misunderstandings and to set some guidelines. Generally speaking, as long as you continue to do your own writing, getting advice or comments from other sources does not constitute plagiarism.
