equally participate in class discussion; hence, each is encouraged to comply with the
assigned task. Failure to comply means delinquency which will adversely affect ones
performance in the course. Late submission of homework or seatwork will not be
tolerated.
C. Examinations. There will be four major examinations (preliminary, midterm, semi-
final and final examinations). All major examinations will be administered on the date
set by the department otherwise specified. The scope of each exam will include but
not limited to the topics given in the class for a specific term. Other policies regarding
examination will be announced prior or at the date of the test or be included in the
general directions of the test paper. Make-up tests will only be given to a student
having a valid reason for not taking the examination on the prescribed date. This will
be possible if one can present suitable documents justifying the absence on the time
of the examination. The instructor or the university reserves the right to disapprove
any explanations for absences presented without prior notice and to void opportunity
for a make-up test.
D. Academic Misconduct. Academic misconduct will be subject to disciplinary action.
Any act of dishonesty in academic work constitutes academic misconduct. This
includes plagiarism, changing or falsifying any academic documents or materials,
cheating, and giving or receiving unauthorized aid in tests, examinations, or other
assigned school works. Punishment for academic misconduct will vary according to
the seriousness of the offense. Punishment for such offenses includes expulsion,
suspension, non-credit of examination and the like.
E. Regulations and Restrictions in the Classroom

attitude inside the class. They must avoid interrupting or distracting the class on any
level. The following must be strictly observed during the class.
