Academic misconduct, including plagiarism, cheating, and other violations of academic ethics, is a serious academic infraction for which penalties may range from a recorded caution to expulsion from the College. The RMCC Academic Regulations Section 23 defines plagiarism as: ``Using the work of others and attempting to present it as original thought, prose or work. This includes failure to appropriately acknowledge a source, misrepresentation of cited work, and misuse of quotation marks or attribution.'' It also includes ``the failure to acknowledge that work has been submitted for credit elsewhere.'' All students should consult the published statements on Academic Misconduct contained in the

*Royal Military College of Canada Undergraduate Calendar*, Section 23.
