Academic Integrity Policy
Academic integrity is honest, truthful and responsible conduct in all academic endeavors. The mission of Saint Louis University is "the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity." Accordingly, all acts of falsehood demean and compromise the corporate endeavors of teaching, research, health care, and community service via which SLU embodies its mission. The University strives to prepare students for lives of personal and professional integrity, and therefore regards all breaches of academic integrity as matters of serious concern.
The governing University-level Academic Integrity Policy was adopted in Spring 2015, and can be accessed on the Provost's Office website at:
Additionally, each SLU College, School, and Center has adopted its own academic integrity policies, available on their respective websites. All SLU students are expected to know and abide by these policies, which detail definitions of violations, processes for reporting violations, sanctions, and appeals. Please direct questions about any facet of academic integrity to your faculty, the chair of the department of your academic program, or the Dean/Director of the College, School or Center in which your program is housed.

Two particular points with regards to this class include:
- Students are NOT allowed to use code or solutions from outside sources (e.g. the Internet, other students, other textbooks, etc.) unless otherwise noted.
- Cooperation on stated assignments is allowed, even encouraged, provided that:
- students only discuss the problem, not the solution
- students may help guide each other in the process of solving the problem, BUT each student MUST turn in their own answer
- students MUST indicate who they collaborated with
