  2. Fabrication and Falsification. Intentional and unauthorized alteration or invention of any information or citation in an academic exercise. Falsification is a matter of altering information, while fabrication is a matter of inventing or counterfeiting information for use in any academic exercise.
     
  3. Multiple Submission. The submission of substantial portions of the same academic work (including oral reports) for credit more than once without authorization.
     
  4. Plagiarism. Intentionally or knowingly presenting the work of another as one’s own (i.e., without proper
