Classroom Rules of Conduct:
First and foremost, this is not an on-line class. Therefore, students who cannot commit to attending this class as scheduled should not enroll. Students are expected to attend class on time and to remain for the entire period. Continuous tardiness will impact attendance grade. Leaving class early must be approved by the facilitator in order to receive attendance credit. Students must realize that due to the compressed schedule, class time is critical. Continued tardiness of 30 minutes or more will be cause for marking the student absent for that class period. Determination of what is an excused or unexcused absence remains with the discretion of the facilitator as per Park University policies. (see below) Students who miss the first day of class will miss important information about the class format, syllabus, text, exams, and project. This information will not be repeated due to limited class time. However, it will be their responsibility to become familiar with this information. Students who are disruptive, abusive, rude, or unruly towards any student, guest, or faculty will be removed from the class. Rude conducts towards the instructor includes doing homework, reading a book (other than the text) or newspaper, sleeping, or continuously leaving class to answer cell phone. Prohibited conduct is also cause for dismissal from the class. Such conduct includes plagiarism and dishonesty (in any manner or degree). Both will not be tolerated. Submitting the same work (presumably your work) for two different assignments is not plagiarism but it is considered unethical, even if the the two assignments were completed for different classes. If it is discovered that a paper or other assignment was previously prepared for another course, or learning institution, it is an academic impropriety and will result in a "0" grade.
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.

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 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87All work submitted must be the student's own. Any assistance received by a student in preparing papers or reports must be fully acknowledged and disclosed in the work submitted. Students must cite and reference any sources from which data, ideas or words are used, either quoted directly or paraphrased.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
