19 ECE Academic Honesty UF Honor Code All students admitted to the University of Florida have signed a statement of academic honesty committing themselves to be honest in all academic work and understanding that failure to comply with this commitment will result in disciplinary action. This statement is a reminder to uphold your obligation as a UF student and to be honest in all work submitted and exams taken in this course and all others. 19

20 ECE Academic Honesty Do not copy and paste for credit If results from others are used, clearly state so and give credit in the reference section. Never cite verbatim.
