    H. Attendance Policy

    Course Attendance at First Class Meeting Policy for Graduate Students: For structured courses, 6000 and above, the College/Campus Dean will set the first-day class attendance requirement. Check with the College for specific information. This policy is not applicable to courses in the following categories: Educational Outreach, Open University (TV), FEEDS Program, Community Experiential Learning (CEL), Cooperative Education Training, and courses that do not have regularly scheduled meeting days/times (such as, directed reading/research or study, individual research, thesis, dissertation, internship, practica, etc.). Students are responsible for dropping undesired courses in these categories by the 5th day of classes to avoid fee liability and academic penalty. (See USF Regulation Registration - 4.0101,

    http://usfweb2.usf.edu/usfgc/ogc%20web/currentreg.htm)

    Attendance Policy for the Observance of Religious Days by Students: In accordance with Sections 1006.53 and 1001.74(10)(g) Florida Statutes and Board of Governors Regulation 6C-6.0115, the University of South Florida (University/USF) has established the following policy regarding religious observances: (http://usfweb2.usf.edu/usfgc/gc_pp/acadaf/gc10-045.htm)

    In the event of an emergency, it may be necessary for USF to suspend normal operations. During this time, USF may opt to continue delivery of instruction through methods that include but are not limited to: Blackboard, Elluminate, Skype, and email messaging and/or an alternate schedule. Its the responsibility of the student to monitor Blackboard site for each class for course specific communication, and the main USF, College, and department websites, emails, and MoBull messages for important general information.

    I. Policy on Make-up Work

    Emergency Preparedness for Academic Continuity: In the event of an emergency, it may be necessary for USF to suspend normal operations. During this time, USF may opt to continue delivery of instruction through methods that include but are not limited to: Blackboard, Elluminate, Skype, and email messaging and/or an alternate schedule. Its the responsibility of the student to monitor Blackboard site for each class for course specific communication, and the main USF, College, and department websites, emails, and MoBull messages for important general information.

    Students with Disabilities: Students in need of academic accommodations for a disability may consult with the office of Students with Disabilities Services to arrange appropriate accommodations. Students are required to give reasonable notice prior to requesting an accommodation.

    Academic Integrity

    The faculty of the Electrical Engineering Department is committed to maintaining a learning environment which promotes academic integrity and the professional obligations recognized in the IEEE Code of Ethics (http://ee.eng.usf.edu/about/codeOfEthics.htm ). Accordingly, the department adheres to a common Academic Integrity Policy in all of its courses. This policy is to be applied uniformly in a fair and unbiased manner.

    University rules regarding academic integrity will be strictly enforced. It is not acceptable to copy, plagiarize or otherwise make use of the work of others in completing homework, project, laboratory report, exam or other course assignments. Likewise, it is not acceptable to knowingly facilitate the copying or plagiarizing of ones own work by others in completing homework, project, laboratory report, exam or other course assignments. It is only acceptable to give or receive assistance from others when expressly permitted by the instructor. Unless specified otherwise, as in the case of all take-home exams, scholarly exchange regarding out-of-class assignments is encouraged. A more complete explanation of behaviors that violate academic integrity is provided at:

    http://www.ugs.usf.edu/catalogs/1112/pdf/AcademicIntegrityOfStudents.pdf.

    The minimum penalty for violation of the academic integrity policy stated in the preceding paragraph is the greater of an automatic zero on the assignment or a letter grade reduction in the overall course grade. Student(s) found in violation of the policy on an exam will receive a minimum penalty of an F in the course. All instances of policy violations will be recorded in a letter from the instructor that is kept in the student files held by the department; a copy of the letter will be forwarded to the appropriate (undergraduate or graduate) Dean's office. A second violation of the policy, irrespective of whether it was related to an exam or any other course assignment, will result in a course grade of FF and expulsion from the Electrical Engineering Department.
