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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93

(Unexcused in generally defined as work-related or due to illness.) If a student misses more than one class for an unexcused reason, the final letter grade will be dropped one letter for each additional day missed.
