Academic Honesty

Work in this course, unless explicitly stated in writing to the contrary, is to be an effort by the individual student. It is not acceptable to use work other than your own without full attribution and acknowledgment. While you are welcome to discuss problems with others, it is not acceptable to discuss solutions with them. Depending on the severity of the infraction, penalties may include a grade of zero on the offending item, a grade of zero on the offending item and a reduction of the final grade by one full letter grade, a failing grade in the course with an indication of academic dishonesty. Such penalties might result in a requirement to withdraw from the university. If in doubt about anything related to academic integrity, see the instructor.
