Academic Dishonesty and Cheating:

Any confirmed academic dishonesty including but not limited to copying homeworks or cheating on exams, will result in a no-pass or failing grade. You are encouraged to read the campus policies regarding academic integrity and dishonesty: http://www.ucsc.edu/academics/academic%5Fintegrity/graduate%5Fstudents/

Examples of cheating include (but are not limited to):

  • Sharing or copying results or other information during an examination.
  • Working on an exam before or after the official time allowed.
  • Submitting homework that is not your own work.
  • Reading another student's homework solution before it is due.
  • Allowing someone else to read your homework solution before the assignment is due.
  • Use homework solutions from previous years.

If there is any question as to whether a given action might be construed as cheating, see me before you engage in any such action or check the university policies on academic dishonesty.
