Zero tolerance for cheating – Frankly, if you are relying on cheating to get by at this stage in your life, you’ve made your own bed already and there is not much I can do about it- you have to sleep in it. However, cheating is against the University’s policy and perhaps more importantly, it is an insult to your fellow students, so there will be zero tolerance. Any student caught cheating will receive an automatic "F" in the course without the option to repeat or drop and the case will be brought immediately to the Office of the Dean of Students. Please review and know your obligations as a student as outlined in the UCSB Handbook.
