Exam Dates and Policies


Considerate Behavior and Cheating: Talking in class is disruptive to others trying to concentrate on the lecture. Violators may be asked to sit separately or leave the class. Cheating on tests will not be tolerated. Any cheating will immediately be reported the head of the Mathematics Department for disciplinary action. Cheaters are often caught and the usual punishment is a 0 in the course, expulsion from the University for 1 year, no transferability for courses taken at another institution while under suspension and a notation on your transcript of the suspension due to cheating. Finally, it is considered inappropriate in any course to bring friends or other students not registered in the course into the lectures without first obtaining permission of the instructor.
