your colleagues as a resource (they are working towards the same goal as you
are), for example, by forming study groups. However, all solutions have to be
the work of only the people listed on it. Do not copy from others or let others
copy your work. In particular, you have to cite all of the resources you relied
on for coming up with your answers. This includes web pages, publications,
people, and so on, other than the textbook, instructor, and teaching
All students are responsible for reading and following the Student Conduct Code. Note that the USC Student Conduct Code prohibits plagiarism. Some examples of what is not allowed by the conduct code: copying all or part of someone else's work (by hand or by looking at others' files, either secretly or if shown), and submitting it as your own; giving another student in the class a copy of your assignment solution; and consulting with another student during an exam. If you have questions about what is allowed, please discuss it with the instructor.
Students who violate university standards of academic integrity are subject to disciplinary sanctions, including failure in the course and suspension from the university. Since dishonesty in any form harms the individual, other students, and the university, policies on academic integrity will be strictly enforced. Violations of the Student Conduct Code will be filed with the Office of Student Conduct.
