Brown University has an Academic Code that governs all our transactions. This Code includes a section on Respect for the Integrity of the Academic Process, which establishes its policy on cheating. We expect that you, as students and scholars, will abide by this faithfully and fully.

Because Brown does not operate on an honor code, we have no choice but to police you, even though this saps valuable time and weakens the spirit. Therefore, we will check for violations of the Code. If we believe you are in violation, we will prosecute as per the department’s and Brown’s regulations.

You are forbidden from using Internet resources for assistance other than those specifically linked from the course website. Be aware that we monitor many of these resources, so do not even try.

We have prosecuted students who violated this policy in the past, and will not hesitate to do so in the future.
