Attendance and Dishonesty policies
      Students are expected to attend all classes and complete all
required work on time. Late to the class is considered absence.
Irregular attendance or any substantial number of unexpected
absences may weight adversely in the consideration of grades of any
petition for a special academic privilege such as make-up exams. All
excuses for absence must be secured to me at the next class

      Cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited.
Students guilty of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly
through participation or assistance, are immediately responsible and
disciplinary sanctions will be imposed through the regular institutional
          Individual assignments are expected to be student’s solely
efforts, giving your work to other students, or taking other students
work is an honor violation. Late works are not accepted – not
negotiable. NO MAKE UP Exams for those who will be absent. If you
didn’t do your assignments, or any Exam, the possibility to fail the
course is increased.

It is your responsibility to be aware of the rules and regulations of An
Najah National University, Ignorance is not excused.
