Late Policy

All deadlines are firm. 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 verified medical or family emergency. You must discuss your situation with me personally before the deadline to receive an extension. The same holds for all exams.

Students are responsible for keeping backups of written assignments and project files until the course is over. Extensions will not be granted for lost work.

Academic Honesty

Simply put, do not cheat and do not plagiarize or copy (from other students or from the web). I expect all students to adhere to the academic honesty policies at USF. More information is available in the Fogcutter Student Handbook, 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.
