- Cheating Policy: Collaboration is a very good thing, but cheating
is considered a very serious offense. Please don't do it! The individual
work you turn in should not look like anyone else's.
Concern about cheating creates an unpleasant environment for everyone.
If you cheat, you risk losing your position as a student in the department
and the college. The department's policy on cheating is to report any
cases to the college cheating committee.
