Given the topic of this course, students’ honesty, integrity and ethics are of particular importance. Students are expected to adhere to the University policy on academic honesty, which you will find in the course catalog and on the University website. Anyone caught cheating (e.g., using notes, looking at another’s test, using an electronic device, etc.) will be failed in this course and reported to the campus Judiciary, even if the process jeopardizes graduation. The only allowed tools during tests are your brain, pencils, and an eraser. If a student lies to me about the reason for one or more missed tests/deadlines or presents me with falsified documentation for one or more missed tests/deadlines, he or she will be failed in this class and reported to the campus Judiciary, even if the process jeopardizes graduation.
