Late Submission of Course Materials:
Week 1 assignments only (has a grace period) of an extra week during the term with no late penalty.
Beginning with Week 2 the following
policy will be in effect for late assignments:
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 (Eastern Standard Time) the following Sunday. Assignments
scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed as specified in
the syllabus. Writing assignments and formal papers should be completed and
successfully submitted, postmarked, or faxed so that they are in my hands on
the due date. This applies to assignments submitted through the postal service,
as well as to assignments and papers submitted on-line. NOTE:
Because this is an online course designed to provide you feedback on
assignments via the Internet, you must make prior arrangements with me before
submitting a paper via fax or the postal service.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: As outlined per each week in the online course.
Academic Honesty:As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly. Park University 2011-2012 Graduate Catalog Page 21
Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.
Park University 2011-2012 Graduate Catalog Page 21
