Late policy: Exams must be taken at the scheduled date and time. Make up exams will not be provided without a very valid reason. See the assignments page for the late policy regarding assignments.
Academic honesty: Cheating will not be tolerated and can result in failure of the course. Submitted programs must be entirely your own work. Under no circumstances should you copy another person's code. Exams are to be strictly your own effort. Unless specified, no electronic devices are allowed in written exams. Programming exams must be completed without communication with any non-staff member.
Any student who may need an accommodation due to a disability, please make an appointment to see me during my office hours. A letter from a Montana Tech Disability Coordinator authorizing your accommodations is needed.
