Policy for Cheating
The University of South Carolina and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering take a strong stand against cheating.
Anyone caught cheating in this course will receive a grade of F and the incident will be reported, which may result in further disciplinary
action. You are allowed to ask for help in the labs and on certain parts of projects and homework; but do your own work.
Don't let anyone do it for you. Do not turn in someone else's work as your own or give work to another student. It could be be turned in as their
work. The student that gives the work is as guilty as the student that takes the work. The University of South Carolina's Rule of Academic

Open Lab Hours
There are two labs available for you to use outside of your assigned lab time. Rooms 361 and 244 will be open and a lab monitor will be available to answer questions. The lab hours will be posted on the web and on the lab doors.
How to do well in this course:
- Attend lectures and labs. Much of the material that you will be expected to know is not directly from the
textbook. Topics in the textbook will be supplemented with information from other sources.
- Complete homework assignments. Quiz and test questions will be similar to or identical to homework
- Seek help if needed. If you have some trouble completing the lab, see me during my office hours. Don't wait until you fall behind .
- Read the academic responsibility and "what every student should know" document. It can be found here:
