The inevitable rise of plagiarism is still being a continuous issue, particularly among university students. Plagiarism does have a bunch of causes and factors to be hindered. One possible aspect that considers as the cause of plagiarism is reading habit, by realizing the fact that reading has a strong inseparable link towards writing skill. However, the role of reading habit in plagiarism’s cause has not been examined by the previous studies and that leads this study to examine the correlation between students’ reading habits and their committing plagiarism. This study was performed with a quantitative research method, the sample of this study is 33 students of Research Proposal Seminar B-class in the sixth semester of English Teacher Education Department of UIN Sunan Ampel Surabaya.

Several of them indicate having no correlation with the plagiarism percentage and the others indicate having slightly correlation, but overall categories reveal having no significant correlation at all with plagiarism. Knowing this fact, it can be said that reading habit has a low correlation in committing plagiarism.
