How can a person avoid plagiarizing in college?

whenever you have to research stuff.

When researching, make sure you ALWAYS site your sources. Every single website you get information from, make sure you site them. Also, never just take information right from a source without changing it up. You can't copy word for word, you must put it into your own words. Hope this helps, good luck!

I wouldn't copy word for word, I usually paraphrase it into my own words and give credits for them. Thanks.

Yes, I wouldn't copy and paste the whole thing. Is it okay if I paraphrase the whole outline of it?

Don't copy and paste read the article a couple of times all the way through and then once you have an understanding of what you are reading write what you read in your own words
