West Coast                   Satisfactory attendance in courses is a requirement of the university and linked
University                   with student success. The percentage of attendance is calculated on the basis of
Attendance Policy            the clock hours identified and varies by the type of course or major. For
                             example, 30% of a three credit lecture course is 13.5 hours. Absences in excess
                             of 30% of any course will result in a grade of “F” and the student will be required
                             to repeat the course. Nursing students may not be absent for more than 20% of
                             a NURS lab or clinical course identified as “L”. Dental hygiene students may not
                             be absent for more than 20% of any DHYG course whether theory or clinical.

                             If any student is absent from the University for more than 14 consecutive
                             calendar days, excluding holidays, and no contact has been made during that
                             period, the student will be withdrawn from the University.

                             Students must provide the Academic Dean or Dean of Nursing with written
                             documentation verifying the required military leave and length of time
                             requested.

Course Completion            Students are expected to participate in class. Participation includes being
Requirements                 present in the class, participation in discussions, and active engagement in the
                             lecture/learning activities.

                             Students must achieve a passing grade of C or better, submit all required
                             assignments, complete all required quizzes and examinations, and meet the
                             standards of the University attendance policy.

                             Unscheduled quizzes may be given periodically throughout the term. The quizzes
                             may include previously covered content and/or content to be covered during the
                             current day’s class session.

                             Unless designated as a group project by the instructor, all student papers and
                             assignments must be completed by the individual student and represent the
                             student’s own original work. Group projects are designated as such so that all
                             other assignments are individual assignments and are to be completed by the
                             student and NOT as a group assignment.

                             Each student is responsible for his or her own learning which includes all aspects
                             of the work required for a class. In order to maintain security and confidentiality,
                             student assignments must be submitted directly to the instructor via the
                             method(s) approved by the instructor. Do not fax papers to the campus. Do not
                             e-mail papers to instructors without written permission from the instructor.

WCU NURS 207 Promoting Pediatric Wellness in the Family and Community

West Coast                   In order to meet course outcomes students may be required to make up all
University Make-up           assignments and work missed as a result of absences. The faculty may assign
Work Policy                  additional make-up work to be completed for each absence. Hours of make-up
                             work cannot be accepted as hours of class attendance.

                             Students are required to be present when an examination is given. If
                             unexpectedly absent for a documented emergency situation (i.e. death in the
                             immediate family), it is the student’s responsibility to arrange for a make-up
                             date by contacting the faculty member within 48 hours of the original
                             assessment date. The make-up work must be completed within five (5) school
                             days of the originally assigned date. Students who do not take the exam on the
                             scheduled make-up date or who do not contact the instructor within 48 hours
                             will receive a zero score for that assessment activity. The highest score possible
                             on a nursing or dental hygiene make-up examination is passing grade (e.g., if a
                             student obtained a perfect score (100%) in the make-up examination, the grade
                             will still be recorded as a passing grade). Lack of preparation at the scheduled
                             exam time is not an acceptable excuse for not taking an examination or quiz.

Classroom Policies                    Students are expected to dress professionally during class time, as they
                                       will in their future roles and positions.
                                      No children are allowed in class or unattended on campus.
                                      Personal use of cell phones, Blackberries or any other electronic devises
                                       in the classroom during class time is not permitted. Unauthorized use
                                       may lead to faculty member confiscation of the device for the remainder
                                       of the class. Consistent breaches of this policy will be addressed by the
                                       University as a student conduct issue.
                                      Behavior that persistently or grossly interferes with classroom activities
                                       is considered disruptive behavior and may be subject to disciplinary
                                       action. Such behavior inhibits other students' abilities to learn and the
                                       instructor’s abilities to teach. A student responsible for disruptive
                                       behavior may be required to leave class pending discussion and
                                       resolution of the problem. Consistent breaches of this policy will be
                                       addressed as a student conduct issue.

Academic Integrity           Academic honesty, integrity, and ethics are required of all members of the West
Policy                       Coast University community. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a
                             manner reflecting the ideals, values, and educational aims of the University at all
                             times. Academic integrity and honorable behavior are essential parts of the
                             professionalism that will be required well beyond graduation from WCU. They
                             are the foundation for ethical behavior in the workplace.

                             A student who acts in an unethical or unprofessional manner on an assignment
                             will receive a grade of zero for that assignment. A second incident of unethical
                             or unprofessional behavior may result in administrative termination from the
                             university.

Academic Integrity           In its commitment to academic honesty and accurate assessment of student
Policy (continued)           work, West Coast University uses a plagiarism-detection web-service to help
                             prevent plagiarism. Consequently, instructors reserve the right to submit student
                             assignments to the website to check for similarities between student
                             submissions and the internet, various research databases, and the web-site’s
                             database of previous student submissions.

                             Students may be required to electronically submit their work to the instructor or
                             to the website, and by taking WCU courses, students agree that all assignments
                             are subject to plagiarism detection processes and Academic Honesty policies.
                             Assignments submitted to the website by the student or instructor will become
                             part of the service’s database and will be used for plagiarism prevention and
                             detection. Student papers, however, will remain the intellectual property of the
                             authors.

                             Any submitted papers that are not the student’s original work will be considered
                             plagiarism, in violation of the Academic Honor Code.         For clarification of
                             plagiarism, please refer to the WCU Catalog, Dean or Instructor.

Academic                     The University considers plagiarism and falsification of documents, including
Dishonesty                   documents submitted to the University for other than academic work, a serious
                             matter that may result in a failure in the class or dismissal from the program. All
                             student work is to be submitted to faculty and represent the student’s original
                             work. All students are required to follow the American Psychological Association
                             (APA) writing guidelines. All sources used as references must be properly
                             identified

                             Students who violate university standards of academic integrity are subject to
                             disciplinary sanctions, including failure in the course and suspension from the
                             university. Since dishonesty in any form harms the individual, other students
                             and the university, policies on academic integrity will be strictly enforced.
                             Familiarize yourself with the Academic Integrity guidelines and the Academic
                             Honor Code in WCU catalog and program handbooks.


Testing and                  The university testing policy stipulates that no phones or other electronic
Examination Policy           devices, food or drink, papers, hats or backpacks can be taken into the
                             examination area.        In specific courses the faculty may have additional
                             requirements. Talking during testing or sharing of information regarding the test
                             questions is not allowed.
                             Once the exam results are available, students may schedule reviews of their
                             exams with their instructors. No written or oral notes or any other forms of
                             copying can be engaged when a student reviews his or her exam. Students who
