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.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence, Park Univerity 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 University.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-88UNIVERSITY ATTENDANCE POLICY: Park University has determined that only two reasons for Excused Absences are Military/Job Duty (or) a Family Emergency. An instructor may excuse an absence for the aforementioned reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment.
Each Unexcused Absence will result in the lowering of the offender's grade. A repeated unexcused absence will result in the student being administratively withdrawn by the university. A resulting grade of “F” will be given and reported to the appropriate tuition assistance agency.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
