General Information

Academic Dishonesty & Plagiarism:

Cheating will not be tolerated in this course.  Anyone caught cheating will fail the course and will be reported to the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, in accordance with the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

 Successful students always make sure that their work is original.  This is important because the instructor must be able to gauge what the student has learned.  Therefore, copying the work of another person, whether an essay, answers on your assignments or during a test, is considered plagiarism.

Plagiarism is a form of cheating.  Any time a student uses someone else’s work and does not give that person credit, it is plagiarism.  Anyone who plagiarizes will receive a failing grade on the assignment.  If this is repeated, the student will fail the course and can be expelled from the university.  If you are “suspected” of plagiarism, you will bear the burden of proof.  You must be able to present rough drafts or related materials and discuss the topic intelligently.  Refer to the University of Utah Plagiarism Policy for more details and/or the University of Utah - Policy and Procedures Manual.

University Policy for Incomplete Grades: University policy states that the “I” grade may be given-at the instructor’s discretion-whenever a student has satisfactorily completed at least 80% of the coursework, but is unable to complete the remainder due to extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control.  The instructor will stipulate the particular work to be completed before a new, replacement grade can be submitted. If the work is not completed within one calendar year, the “I” grade will change to an “E” (failing) grade.

ADA Policy: The University of Utah seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services and activities for people with disabilities.  If you will need accommodations in the class, reasonable prior notice needs to be given to the Center for Disability Services (http://www.sa.utah.edu/ds/), 162 Olpin Union Building, 581-5020 (V/ TDD).  CDS will work with you and the instructor to make arrangements for accommodations. Accommodations: Please review the syllabus carefully to see if the course is one that you are committed to taking. If you have a concern, please discuss it with the instructor at your earliest convenience. If you feel that you will need special accommodations based on the course content, please review the Accommodations Policy at http://www.admin.utah.edu/facdev/accommodations-policy.pdf.
