BURD 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 period. 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 procedures. 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.
