Because studying abroad can be both physically and emotionally demanding, we ask that you provide a candid
evaluation of your health. A certain amount of stress due to culture shock or living conditions and facilities can be
expected. In some cases, this may aggravate disabilities or illness which you have under control at home, or trigger onset
of a previously undiagnosed condition.

This information will not be used in determining your admission to this program, but to guide us in making appropriate
arrangements, as needed, for you. The information will be forwarded to the program director or coordinator abroad.
Additionally, we hope completion of the form will create an awareness on your part of any health issues that you should
take into consideration before going abroad.

                  Program Academic and Disciplinary Regulations
                 Tippie School of Management International Studies


As a student of the Tippie School of Management (Tippie) International Program Option (IPO), I
hereby agree to abide by the following rules and policies set forth by Tippie in consideration of fellow
students, faculty, administration, and myself. I understand that failure to abide by these rules and
policies set forth by Tippie will lead to disciplinary action, and that such disciplinary action may include
immediate dismissal from the IPO program.

BEHAVIORAL POLICY:
   1. Professional behavior is expected in all class and corporate activities. Participants who are
      judged to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs before, during or after Tippie
      sponsored events may not be allowed to attend said events and/or allowed on Tippie
      sponsored transportation in the interest of the safety, health and welfare of fellow participants.
   2. Cooperation with any staff member’s reasonable request in the interest of participant’s safety,
      health and welfare is expected of all participants and their guests. Participants are expected to
      resolve disputes or conflicts in a cooperative manner. Fights, under any and all circumstances,
      will not be tolerated. Participants are encouraged to seek staff assistance to mediate disputes
      or to reduce the noise when reasonable requests are ignored.
   3. Conduct which is disruptive to the program or offensive to the host culture, or which endangers
      students or others, sexual harassment, racial or ethnic harassment, will not be tolerated.
      Conduct such as, but not limited to, abuse of alcohol, intentional and deliberate antagonistic
      behavior, disruptive noise, and abusive language toward fellow participants, program faculty
      and staff, or citizens of the host country will not be tolerated. Anyone who directs any
      deliberate and/or intimidating gestures toward another person or purposely humiliates, makes
      degrading comments, or removes personal computer files or material of any other student from
      any of the computers will be subject to disciplinary action.

ACADEMIC POLICY:

   1. Participation in all class, academic and corporate activities is expected for all enrolled students.
      Attendance at all classes is mandatory. The following policy will be strictly enforced:
              • 1st Absence – loss of a letter grade
              • 2nd Absence – dismissal from the program.

       Two unexcused absences will lead to program dismissal. Participants are not allowed to take
       exams early, depart early from the Tippie program or miss class.

   2. Tippie considers all instances of academic fraud, such as but not limited to plagiarism,
      cheating and forgery, as serious academic misconduct and a major violation of the Tippie
      Honor Code.
Program Academic and Disciplinary regulations
I understand and I agree to abide by the Behavioral and Academic Policies and any other regulations
set forth by Tippie. My failure to follow these regulations and policies will result in disciplinary actions,
which may include my immediate dismissal from the program.

I understand that the Tippie Academic and Disciplinary Regulations do not follow a progressive
discipline framework. This means that I am not guaranteed a first warning before any disciplinary
action is taken.

I agree that Tippie has the right to enforce these standards of conduct in its sole judgment and that it
may impose sanctions, up to and including expulsion from the program, for violating these standards
or for any behavior detrimental to or incompatible with the interest, harmony and welfare of the
University of Iowa, the program or other participants. I recognize that due to the circumstances of
foreign study programs, procedures for notice, hearing and appeal applicable to student disciplinary
proceedings at the University of Iowa may not apply. If I am expelled, I consent to being sent home at
my own expense.

I waive and release all claims against Tippie, its officers, employees and agents that may arise at a
time when I am not under the direct supervision of Tippie or that are caused by my failure to remain
under such supervision or to comply with Tippie regulations, policies and/or instructions.
