It is also committed to redemptive efforts, which are meaningful only in light of these principles. Students will be granted due process and the opportunity for an appeal. Academic dishonesty offenses generally are subject to incremental disciplinary actions. Some first offenses, however, receive severe penalties, including dismissal from the University or degree cancellation. Some offenses are subject to legal action, in addition to university disciplinary action. Discipline may be retroactive if academic dishonesty becomes apparent after the student leaves a course, a program, or the University. 18

19 If evidence of academic dishonesty becomes apparent after a degree has been granted, the degree may be annulled and a notification affixed to the student's official transcript record. General Disciplinary The following is a non-comprehensive list of possible actions apart from dismissal from the University: denial or revocation of admission; warning from a teacher, a department chair, program director or academic dean; a lower or failing grade on an assignment, test or course; suspension or dismissal from the course; suspension or dismissal from the academic program. For further details please visit: Writing and Referencing APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences. Referencing in papers, presentations and other formats using outside sources should follow the APA format. It is strongly recommended that students purchase an APA publication manual for detailed guidance regarding proper writing and referencing. Proper referencing is essential for maintaining academic integrity. The use of APA writing style communicates a high level of professionalism in one s academic work. Course Grades 3.6 Grade Issuance Course grades are issued by the course (lecture/lab) instructor, course coordinator, or program administrator. Explanation of the grading process for each course is detailed in the respective course outline. The grades are normally submitted to the Records Office when all students have completed all of the assignments and the instructor has finished grading these assignments. Posting Scores Students wishing to know their final grade before the University posts the official grade on the Web may contact the instructor to receive their grade. Grade Problems Only the instructor, course coordinator, or program administrator are allowed to discuss grades with the student(s). Any grades given to the student by means other than the official university postings are considered unofficial and are not binding. Grading problems not resolved by the instructor must be taken to the program administrator. If you have a DG or Incomplete and need your grade to be changed, contact your instructor or program administrator. Instructors are responsible for submitting final grades to Academic Records. Deferred Grade (DG) Participants in courses whose requirements are not completed by the end of the university marking period may receive a deferred grade or DG under certain circumstances. These circumstances will be determined by course instructor and program administrator. The permanent grade is submitted later when the grading process is completed. 19

20 Incomplete Students who are unable to complete a course in the time frame established by the program will receive an INCOMPLETE (I) rather than a DG. Prior to the issuance of the I, the student should have been in contact with the instructor as to the circumstances necessitating this. The student is required to establish a timeframe that he/she will be able to complete the work by, with the course instructor. Once this has been established, the student must adhere to this timeline. Failure to do so will result in the grade defaulting to the percentage earned up to the point of the missing work. All I s must be cleared within a 1 year time period. Access to Grades Course grades are available one week after graduation through your Vault account. Please contact instructors regarding your grades or about changing your grade, not Academic Records. 3.8 Procedures for Scheduling Proctored Exams Examination Scheduling & Proctoring When can I request an exam? For self-paced online courses, request the next exam as soon as you have submitted all assignments preceding the exam request link. Be prepared to take the exam within two weeks. For interactive online courses, the course lists a date by which you need to send in the request for each exam. Be prepared to take the exam by the deadline stated in the course. How do I request an exam? Log in to your course in Find the exam request link, which should be in the module you have just completed, or the very next one.
