CHEATING:Each student is expected to design, code, enter, test, and validate his/her own work. To submit another’s work (even partial) as your own is called plagiarism and is subject to severe action as stated in the MSU Student Handbook. Two students working together to complete an assignment is also considered cheating. Students are expected to see the instructor or the instructor’s designated assistant for help on assignments.
Cheating in any form will not be tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to, cheating on exams, turning in another’s work as your own, and plagiarism on written work. Punishment may include an F in the course or expulsion from the university. (Refer to Student Handbook and Activities Calendar, Code of Student Conduct, Standards of Conduct, No. 11.) A discussion of plagiarism will be given early in the semester. The slides will be posted on the course website.
