Plagiarism can get you a zero mark on a particular assignment ─ at the least. It can also get you a zero for the entire course and possibly even booted out of the class. In any event, it will definitely be officially registered with the college.
Be warned: I do not treat plagiarism lightly. I will punish it to the greatest extent at my disposal.
