3 Honor Code

All students are expected to abide by the GMU Honor Code. This policy is rigorously enforced. The computer science department has an CS Honor Code Policies that you are subject to particularly for our courseCheating on any assignment will be prosecuted and result in a notification of the Honor Committee as outlined in the GMU Honor Code. Sharing, collaboration, or looking at any code, algorithm, or solutions of assignments that is not your own (or outside the group for group assignments), including resources from Internet, is considered cheating.

We take the honor code quite seriously. Any attempts at copying or sharing code, algorithms, or other violations of the honor code simply will not be tolerated. We use automated software to flag suspicious cases, and then review them to find the cases that must be submitted to the Office of Academic Integrity. The penalty for cheating will always be far worse than a zero grade, to ensure it's not worth taking the chance. Confirmed cases of cheating almost always translate into course failure.

4 Learning Disabilities

Students with a learning disability or other condition (documented with GMU's Office of Disability Services) that may impact academic performance should contact the professor ASAP to discuss appropriate accommodations.
