(KSL News) A Texas school's new honor code that discourages plagiarism copies word-for-word parts of BYU's honor code.

Students who drafted the honor code at the University of Texas at San Antonio apparently failed to credit their sources. BYU, on the other hand, credited the Center for Academic Integrity for its honor code.

The student in charge of San Antonio's version says it was an oversight that will be corrected. But cheating experts say the incident shows how sloppy Internet-era students have become in citing sources pulled from the computer.
