“The faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy will not tolerate academic dishonesty. Falsification of data, copying, unauthorized collaboration, plagiarism, alteration of graded materials, or other actions (as described in, but not necessarily limited to the CSUS Policy Manual) will be promptly reported to the Office of Student Affairs. The offending student will be penalized on the assignment in question. Serious infractions will result in course failure and a recommendation for administrative sanctions.”
I am a very firm believer in this statement (I was a co-author). I will not hesitate to file a report to the Office of Student Affairs if I believe a violation has occurred. If you have any questions regarding this statement, please see me.
