HONESTY/ETHICS IN ACADEMIC WORK

It is my expectation that anything that you submit to me for evaluation in any course that I teach will represent your own original work. I encourage you to work together, learn from each other, teach each other, however, your submissions should represent your own thoughts, your own words, your own code, your own results.

Student behavior deemed by myself to violate the above expectation will be subject to disciplinary action. The course of disciplinary action will be as follows:

  1. For a first offense the student(s) involved will receive, at a minimum, a grade of zero for the assigned work.
  2. For a second offense, in the same or a different course, the student(s) will receive, at a minimum, a failing grade for that course.
  3. For a third offense, the student(s) will be recommended for suspension and their case will be referred to judicial affairs.
