ACADEMIC HONESTY: "Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park."
PLAGIARISM: Plagiarism-the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one's original work-sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors."
UNIVERSITY ATTENDANCE POLICY: Park University has determined that only two reasons for Excused Absences are Military/Job Duty (or) a Family Emergency - this type of emergency is you or immediate family is in a hospital. These situations will of course require written substantiation. Instructors are required by the university to keep attendance records and report absences. An instructor may excuse an absence for the above "University Excused Reasons", but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment. Attendance will be taken at the start of each class. Unexcused absences will unfortunately carry penalties. Each Unexcused Absences will result in lowering a student's course grade one full letter grade for each incident. Each Unexcused Lateness to a class meeting will lower a student's course grade one-half full letter grade for each incident. In the event of one week of unexcused absence in a class being held once a week in a term of enrollment, the student may be administratively withdrawn by the university, resulting in a grade of "F". An Incomplete will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences in a course. Excessive absences will have to be reported to the appropriate tuition assistance agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSE MATERIALS: will loose one full letter grade for Each Assignment for Each Class Meeting Date Submitted Late in addition to other attendance penalties.

CLASSROOM RULES OF CONDUCT: To have a Positive Learning Experience only Positive Relevant Classroom Participation will be permitted. Attendance and punctuality are very important in life and very important here as well. Not attending class and lateness shows disrespect for all involved.
