Environmental Sciences Honor Policy

Given the availability of old exams, worked problem sets, and laboratory exercises that are increasingly becoming available from online services and other venues, the Environmental Sciences Department considers student access of these materials for Environmental Sciences courses, without explicit instructor permission, to be a violation of the UVa Honor Code.
