Late Submission of Course Materials:
Assignments are late if they are not posted by 11:59p.m.M.S.T. the day they are due. Late assignments receive a 10% deduction for each day they are late. Assignments more than five days late will not be accepted unless the student/learner and instructor have negotiated and mutually agreed upon an alternative submission date in advance. Technological issues are not considered valid grounds for late assignment submission. In the event of an Argosy server outage, students should submit assignments through email to the instructor and post to the appropriate folder when systems are restored.
Note: Although late Week 8 assignment submissions can be accepted (with any appropriate deductions) prior to 3 AM M.S.T Day 4, no extensions of the due date beyond this point can be made, regardless of circumstance, unless an Incomplete has already been approved.
Late Discussion Board Posts:
Participation in the threaded discussions is a core aspect of Park University’s learning environment. It is critical to the success of the classroom environment that students contribute to the threaded discussions in a timely manner. Please note that students can only earn participation points during the current week. For example, students must actively participate during Week 2 in order to earn participation points for Week 2. Students will not receive participation points for Week 2 if they respond in the discussion threads after the due date. No points will be earned for DQs' responses posted after the due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
This is an online class and requires adherence to some basic rules of online etiquette. Mainly, avoid making disparaging remarks about others, particularly other participants, in the classroom discussions. Do not use offensive or lewd language, and avoid steering too far off topic in topical discussions. Remember that private conversations, including conversations with the instructor, are best carried out through email, where you may be able to express yourself more directly.
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 students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
