The Department of Computer Science employs a no tolerance policy on cheating. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, copying others work, misrepresenting the work of others as your own (includes the use of code provided by online sites), plagiarism, sharing when unauthorized, and the use of cell phones and/or electronic media when unauthorized. The following outlines the departmental procedure if a student is suspected of cheating during their academic tenure with the Computer Science Department at Norfolk State University.
The college of Science, Engineering, and Technology provides tutoring services through the STARS Tutoring Center for those NSU student who may be experiencing difficulties in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Nursing, Technology and Physics courses. The STARS office is located in Suite 100, RTC. This service is free of charge and provided to NSU students only. You can access information about this service by going to http://stars.nsu.edu.
In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, we ask if you have a disability or think you have a disability, please contact O.A.S.I.S., the Office of Accessibility Services, upon registration at Norfolk State University to confidentially discuss any accommodation needs.
As part of NSU's commitment to provide the environment and resources needed for success, students may be required to participate in a number of university-wide assessment activities. The activities may include tests, surveys, focus groups and interviews, and portfolio reviews. The primary purpose of the assessment activities is to determine the extent to which the university's programs and services maintain a high level of quality and meet the needs of students. Students will not be identified in the analysis of results. Unless indicated otherwise by the instructor, results from University assessment activities will not be computed in student grades.
All first-time freshmen and readmitted students entering Fall 2001 and thereafter and transfer students entering Fall 2002 and thereafter are required to take an exit examination to assess writing competency. After completing ENG 102, students must register for ENG 299 (no credit, no charge) until successfully passing the Examination of Writing Competency. Degree-seeking students at the baccalaureate level are required to take the writing examination before completing 90 semester hours. Associate degree-seeking students must take the exam no later than one semester prior to the anticipated date of graduation. For more information, refer tot he NSU Undergraduate catalog.
A student is expected to attend all classes. The student assumes all responsibility for work missed due to an absence. Make-up work may be permitted at the discretion of the instructor. Refer to the NSU Student Handbook (https://www.nsu.edu/Assets/websites/student-affairs/student-handbook/NSU-Student-Handbook.pdf)
