Hints: From Wiki How

Don't reuse assignments without permission

Q; If I hand in an essay to meet the needs of an assignment, and it is just a re-write of an essay from another course, is that self-plagiarism?

And it is cheating. Similar to buying an essay to submit as your own.
And it is self defeating because it does not allow you to practice an essential skill.
