    McMaster University Statement on Academic Dishonesty
     
    Academic dishonesty consists of misrepresentation by deception or by other fraudulent means and can result in serious consequences, e.g. the grade of zero on an assignment, loss of credit with a notation on the transcript (notation reads: "Grade of F assigned for academic dishonesty"), and/or suspension or expulsion from the university.
     
    It is your responsibility to understand what constitutes academic dishonesty. For information on the various kinds of academic dishonesty please refer to the Academic Integrity Policy, specifically Appendix 3, located here.
     
    The following illustrates only three forms of academic dishonesty:
    1. Plagiarism, e.g. the submission of work that is not one's own or for which other credit has been obtained.
    2. Improper collaboration in group work.
    3. Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and examinations.
