Classroom Rules of Conduct: Class participation is expected and will form a part of the final grade. Students are expected to come to class prepared and to be on time. Attendance will be taken each class meeting. Classes missed for legitimate reasons such as illness, temporary military duty, are excusable; however, the student must make up any missed work. Each student is responsible for providing the justification for an unexcused absence. Two or more unexcused absences are excessive and could result in a failing grade for the course.
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96
