Academic Honesty. “’A Culture of Honesty’ is the university of Georgia’s policy
about academic honesty. … Every student who enrolls at the University agrees to
be bound by the policy. … This means that each student has a responsibility to read
the policy. [a copy is located at http://www.uga.edu/ovpi/honesty/main.html] and
comply with it. It’s no defense to a charge of academic dishonesty to say ‘I didn’t
know that was prohibited.’ … Students must perform all of their academic work
without plagiarizing, cheating, lying, tampering, stealing, receiving assistance
from others (unless the faculty member authorizes that assistance) or using sources
to assist in that work (without giving fair attribution). [Source: “A Culture of
Honesty at the University of Georgia.” A pamphlet published by the UGA Office of the
Vice President for Instruction].
Important! You are NOT to receive ANY outside assistance on the computing projects
without prior approval from the professor. In fairness to the students who are
ethical, any student found violating the academic honor code will be prosecuted.
Your projects must be the result of your individual effort.
