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 a academic dishonesty please refer to the Academic Integrity
    Policy, specifically Appendix 3, located at:
    http://www.mcmaster.ca/senate/academic/ac_integrity.htm

               The following illustrates only two 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. Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and
               examinations.

                                                                                  (Med Phys 772) - Page 1 of 1
