Late Policy

***All deadlines are firm except in case of verifiable medical emergency.***

Students are responsible for meeting all homework and project deadlines. Extensions will not be granted and late homework will not be accepted except in case of verifiable medical emergency.

Academic Honesty

Simply put, do not cheat and do not plagiarize or copy (from other students or from the web). All work in this class is to be completed individually—not in groups. I expect all students to adhere to the academic honesty policies at USF. More information is available at http://www.usfca.edu/fogcutter/studentconduct/.

Students caught violating the academic honesty policy will face severe penalty. A first offense will result in a 0 on an assignment or exam, and a report to the Dean's office. Repeat offenses may result in an F for the course.
