Jennifer,

Faculty at Antelope Valley College submit a behavior intervention form for
plagiarism which is sent to me and my colleague in the Writing Center by
the Office of Student Services.
The student is responsible for contacting one of us, not the other way
around, regarding an academic honesty workshop which includes attending one
or more writing workshops (research paper, MLA and APA format),
viewing a video on plagiarism, and meeting with us to discuss his/her
individual situation and how to avoid plagiarism in the future.  We give
the student proof of attendance which he/she then takes to the
Vice-President to have the hold on their account lifted.  As a result of
this approach, the rate of recidivism is very low I am glad to report.

I also encourage faculty to let students submit their papers to
Turnitin.com and receive their results.  If the percentage of matched text
is high, students should
be given another chance to revise their citations before they re-submit the
final product.

Both approaches are educational and less punitive.
