ACADEMIC POLICIES
Academic Integrity
Academic honesty is of utmost importance at AUD, as described in the Student Handbook. Students are
expected to demonstrate academic integrity by completing their own work, assignments and other
assessment exercises. Submission of work from another person, whether it is from printed sources or
someone other than the student; previously graded papers; papers submitted without proper citations; or
submitting the same paper to multiple courses without the knowledge of all instructors involved can result in
a failing grade. Incidents involving academic dishonesty will be reported to university officials for appropriate
sanctions.
Furthermore, students must always submit work that represents their original words or ideas. If any words
or ideas used in a class posting or assignment submission do not represent the students original words or
ideas, all relevant sources must be cited along with the extent to which such sources were used. Words or
ideas that require citation include, but are not limited to, all hard copy or electronic publications, whether
copyrighted or not, and all verbal or visual communication when the content of such communication clearly
originates from an identifiable source.
Classroom Atmosphere
As a courtesy to the class, mobile phones and pagers must be silenced or turned off so that they will not
disturb the class. Possession of active cell phones or communication devices during exams is unacceptable
and will result in assignment of an (F) grade in the exam.
Attendance
Due to the nature of the course, attendance and class participation are both important aspects of the
learning experience. For this reason, students are expected to arrive to class on-time, to attend all classes,
and actively participate in class discussions. Students are required to abide by the university policy on
attendance published in the Undergraduate Catalog and the Student Handbook.
Make-up
Some scheduled class meetings that do not take place because of declared holidays, instructor illness or any
unforeseen circumstances may be rescheduled by the University or the instructor. These make up class
session will be scheduled during the Study/Make-up period allotted at the end of the semester. Any class
activity (lecture, exam, class presentation, etc.) that cannot be performed because of such class cancellations
will take place during the first class meeting held after reconvening, in order to preserve the order of the
class schedule as much as possible.
