Academic integrity is the foundation of ethical academic practice and is central to this institution. As such, the college faculty and administration will not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, dishonesty, falsification of documents or any other act which could compromise academic integrity.
Students who do not complete required course assignments and/or exams will receive an incomplete status on their transcript. If a student would like to change the incomplete status for a grade after the completion of the course, it is his/her responsibility to communicate the reason for the lack of submission both to the course professor and to the Office of International Academic Affairs. It is at the discretion of the professor to allow the student to complete the late material and to decide under what conditions (e.g. late penalty, alteration of assignment, new deadline).
The request to complete assignments for an incomplete course must be made to both the course professor and to the Office of International Academic Affairs. The requests must be made in writing by email, within two weeks of the end of the course.
