(B) Coursework. Work done for class, which a student submits as the student's own work, will not contain that which has been obtained from another, other than properly credited references, sources, and citations. The work which a student submits will be prepared in accordance with course guidelines.
(C) Exams. Work done on a test, exam, or quiz will be the student's own and will not contain that which has been obtained from an inappropriate source. A student will not obtain nor seek to obtain advanced access to questions or advance copies of a test, exam, or quiz without the instructor's permission.
