How do I file to graduate? Can I participate in the graduation ceremony even if I am not receiving a diploma?
If you are actually graduating and recieving your diploma, you need to do two things. First, make sure to fill out a program sheet and turn it in to Claire Stager at least one quarter before you intend to graduate. Then you must file to graduate on Axess. There is a deadline for this; check the academic calendar. If you are not actually graduating, but you want to walk through at graduation, then you should keep an eye out during spring quarter for an email announcement from Claire. She will send out mail to the BSCS list when walk-through petitions are available, and you need to fill one of those. The university requires you to have at least 165 units in order to walk through at graduation.
How does the Honor Code apply to CS?
Each person is expected to submit his or her own work. In particular, attempting to take credit for someone else's work by turning it in as one's own constitutes plagiarism, a serious violation of basic academic standards. For more details, please read the honor code page.
