Note: the Sun workstations in the Grad Lab run Solaris, not Linux. Don't use them as your final test environment!
The web submission system itself asks what file type is being submitted; "C Program", "C++ Program", and "PDF" are among the options.
It's a real stretch for me to see anybody with any business in a senior-level CS course making a mistake like that.
Even when I've taught freshman-level C programming, I've wanted to be able to run the code. Students in that clbutt (and students in sophomore-level buttembly language programming -- which is my favorite clbutt to teach, BTW) lose points for non-compiling programs for a while during the semester, but at some point they should at least be able to get that far.
