This will open a box which lets you select a file or folder to transfer. Find the one you want, and click the Put button at the bottom of the window.

Transfering Files Using Secure Cop on IMacs

Secure copy is way to transfer files between local and remote computers/servers using the terminal.

From your local computer (using an SCP client), cd into the directory containing the file you want to transfer and type the command:

scp FILENAME MyAFS/15121/handin/exam/your_user_ID

For example, to transfer testfile.txt from my Desktop to one of the 15121 lab handin folders, I would enter:

scp Desktop/testfile.txt MyAFS/15121/handin/exam/Andrewid.

Use scp -r for transfering a directory.

Can I switch to a different recitation section?

Your recitation section is run by a TA, and it is the TAs job to collect and report all of your course grades. It is thus extremely important that any change of section be done with (a) the permission of your current TA and (b) the permission of your new TA. If either your current or new TA fails to appprove of your section switch, then you may not make the switch. There are many reasons why a TA might refuse a section switch. For example, a section might already have too many students.

What if I need more time to do a homework assignment?

If you feel that you have a good reason for an extension, please see an instructor or your TA in person, preferably during office hours.

If I miss a quiz or an exam, can I take a makeup

Make-up exams and quizzes are a courtesy that is extended to students by their instructors. An instructor is never obligated to provide a make-up exam for any student, except in case of medical or family emergencies. Students with a verifiable medical reasons may be excused from being present for scheduled examinations.

If you miss the exam for medical reasons and wish to take a makeup you need to inform me by phone (412-268-8121; there is voice mail) or email before the exam or quiz. You are also obligated to provide a verifiable medical reason (doctor's note). If you do not comply with this, you cannot take the makeup and will receive a zero on the examination.
