Plagiarism impedes learning since it obscures the sources of your ideas and typically produces poor writing.

While plagiarism and self-plagiarism in professional academic settings can result in legal action, including fraud and copyright infringement, they are generally not prohibited in undergraduate settings. It is prohibited by many scholarly publications for you to submit the same work to multiple journals, and you may be breaking the law if you fail to provide credit to a co-author.

If your professor or readers see differences in the tone, formatting, or style of your writing throughout various sections of your paper, or if they recognize the plagiarized source, they may flag it as plagiarism. Depending on the type of plagiarism and the environment in which it occurs, different penalties apply.
Plagiarism causes substantial harm to your reputation, whether you are an academic or professional. In addition, you can lose your employment or research funding, and you might even be prosecuted for copyright infringement so don't plagiarise!
