CIS 530 will be offered in the Fall by Dr. Clayton Greenberg. He will be using the CIS waitlist system to issue permits and manage enrollment. You do not need to email the instructor to receive a permit, instead you should sign yourself up for the waitlist when it opens (around April 12).
After you’ve added yourself to the waitlist, the instructor can issue you a permit. You will receive an email saying permit available. You will receive another email when the permit is issued. At that point, you may register on CoursesInTouch.
You can find links to the live lecture broadcast and to the recordings on the lectures page

- The course will have weekly required readings.
- The grading for the course will consist of:
- 60% for weekly homework assignments
- 15% for quizzes about the readings
- 25% for the final project
- Collaboration Policy
- Unless otherwise noted, you are allowed to work in pairs on the homework assignment. Both partners will receive the same grade. The final projects will have larger groups.
- Late Day Policy
- Each student has five free “late days”. Homeworks can be submitted at most two days late. If you are out of late days, then you will not be able to get credit for subsequent late assignments. One “day” is defined as anytime between 1 second and 24 hours after the homework deadline. The intent of the late day policy it to allow you to take extra time due to unforseen circumstances like illnesses or family emergencies, and for forseeable interruptions like on campus interviewing and religious holidays. You do not need to ask permission to use your late days. No additional late days are granted.
