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."

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Instructors are required to keep attendance records and report absences. The instructor may excuse absences for cogent reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F". An incomplete will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance (TA) or Veteran's Administration (VA) educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student. Reports of F grades (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for students receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSE MATERIALS: Course assignments submitted after the specified due date will not be accepted unless due to an excused absence and coordinated with and approved by the instructor.

COURSE ASSESSMENT: Examinations and chapter problems.

Maintain copies of their graded assignments in the event the instructor inadvertently fails to record the graded result.

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 and, to the extent of any inconsistency between these guidelines and Federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
