Classroom Rules of Conduct:
This course is offered on-line, over the Internet. Students are expected to devote a minimum of four hours per class week logged on to the computer conferencing system - the same amount of time you'd spend in the physical classroom. In addition, students are expected to devote a minimum of another four hours per class week studying the text and other online resources.
A class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday. The first week begins the first day of the semester and ends midnight the following Sunday. Assignments scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed by Sunday of the week assigned. Writing assignments and formal papers should be completed and successfully submitted, or postmarked, so that they are in my hands on the due date. Late assignments will not be accepted. NOTE: Because this is an online course designed to get feedback on assignments to you directly via Internet, you must make prior arrangements with me before submitting a paper via fax or the postal service. If you ever have problems submitting your assignments to the Dropbox, notify me immediately, and we'll get the problem solved.
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 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85Plagiarism, especially for a class in Criminal Justice, simply will not be tolerated and will be grounds for immediate removal from the course. If you have doubts, ask the question first to make sure you are properly giving credit to your sources.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
