Viterbi Academic Resource Center (VARC)

VARC offers peer tutoring for CS360 during some semesters. In those semesters, students can make a VARC tutoring appointment through myviterbi.usc.edu and the VARC Tutoring Appointment Manager. Students should make an appointment with a tutor in advance.

Students with Disabilities

Any student requesting academic accommodations based on a disability is required to register with Disability Services and Programs (DSP) each semester. A letter of veri fication for approved accommodations can be obtained from DSP. Please be sure the letter is delivered to the instructor as early in the semester as possible. DSP is located in STU 301 and is open 8:30am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday. The phone number for DSP is (213) 740-0776.

Academic Integrity

USC seeks to maintain an optimal learning environment. General principles of academic honesty include the concept of respect for the intellectual property of others, the expectation that individual work will be submitted unless otherwise allowed by an instructor, and the obligations both to protect one's own academic work from misuse by others as well as to avoid using another's work as one's own. All students are expected to understand and abide by these principles. Students will be referred to the Office of Student Judicial Aff airs and Community Standards for further review, should there be any suspicion of academic dishonesty. Scampus, the Student Guidebook, contains the student conduct code and the academic review process: https://policy.usc.edu/scampus-part-b/.

Course Continuity in a Crisis

In case of a declared emergency if travel to campus is not feasible, USC executive leadership will announce an electronic way for instructors to teach students in their residence halls or homes using a combination of Blackboard, teleconferencing, and other technologies.
