Requirements and Policies
Academic Dishonesty Policy
As a Christian liberal arts university committed to the pursuit of truth and
understanding, any act of academic dishonesty is especially distressing and cannot
be tolerated. In general, academic dishonesty involves the abuse and misuse of
information or people to gain an undeserved academic advantage or evaluation.
The common forms of academic dishonesty include:
1. cheating – using deception in the taking of tests or the preparation of written
work, using unauthorized materials, copying another person’s work with or
without consent, or assisting another in such activities;
2. lying – falsifying, fabricating, or forging information in
either written or spoken presentations;
3. plagiarism –
using the published writings, data, interpretations, or ideas of another without
proper documentation.
Episodes of academic dishonesty are reported as appropriate to the Vice President
for Academic Affairs. The potential penalty for academic dishonesty includes 1) a
failing grade on a particular assignment, 2) a failing grade for the entire course, 3)
suspension or expulsion, or (4) revocation of a degree.
Attendance Policy
Course enrollment and participation will be monitored and verified for all students
during the first two weeks of classes. Lack of participation during this time may
jeopardize enrollment status. Each student is expected to meet course expectations by
completing the coursework required each week. Active participation and staying abreast
of the material is essential to success. Program specific attendance policies may still
apply.
Executive Residency Attendance Policy
Attendance to each Executive Residency class session is mandatory. Students may
make-up no more than one (1) residency session throughout the duration of their
academic program. Missing a second residency will result in the student being
dismissed from the University.
Each student must be in attendance for the entire duration of the required residency
weekend. Late arrivals and/or early departures are not permitted. Punctuality is
important as each student is required to have the documented in-seat time per course
requirements.
A missed session will result in the student attending a make-up session, and paying a
$300 Residency Make-Up fee. In addition, the student may be asked for documentation
from the program department providing an explanation as to why the schedule
residency session was missed. Make-Up sessions must be completed prior to the end of
the term. Noncompliance with this policy will result in dismissal from the executive
program.
Participation Policy
Students are expected to actively participate in intelligent discussion of assigned
topics in all areas, such as: Discussion Board Activities, Synchronous Sessions,
Forums, Shared Papers, etc.
Point adjustments will be taken for non-participation.
Disability Accommodations
University of the Cumberlands accepts students with certified disabilities and provides
reasonable accommodations for their certified needs in the classroom, in housing, in
food service or in other areas. For accommodations to be awarded, a student must
submit a completed Accommodations Application form and provide documentation of
the disability to the Disability Services Coordinator (Keely Peterson, Boswell Campus
Center, Student Services Office Suite, accommodations@ucumberlands.edu). When all
paperwork is on file, a meeting between the student and the Coordinator will be
arranged to discuss possible accommodations before accommodations are formally
approved. Students must then meet with the Coordinator at the beginning of each
semester before any academic accommodations can be certified for that term.
Certifications for other accommodations are normally reviewed annually.
Course Evaluations
The course evaluation will be open during the last two weeks of the term. To access the
evaluation (during that time), visit https://uofcumberlands.campuslabs.com/eval-home/
and log-in using your UC credentials. A reminder email notification will be sent when the
evaluation is available.
We value your feedback. Every evaluation is confidential and anonymous. The
anonymous results of the course evaluations are not available for faculty to see until
after final grades are submitted. Your thoughtful responses guide future improvements
for the course and programs.
Academic Appeal
Both undergraduate and graduate students have the right to challenge a grade. If
discussions with the course instructor and department chair do not lead to a satisfactory
conclusion, students may file a formal written appeal with the Vice President for
Academic Affairs, who will forward the appeal to the chair of the Academic Appeals
Committee. This formal written appeal must be filed by the end of the 4th week of
classes in the next regular term following the term in which the course in question was
taken. The Academic Appeals Committee then gathers information from the student, the
instructor, and any other relevant parties. The Committee will deliver its
recommendation on the complaint to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. After
reviewing this recommendation and concurring or amending it, the Vice President for
Academic Affairs will inform the student and instructor of the disposition of the
complaint no later than the last day of classes of the term in which the complaint was
filed. Records of all actions regarding academic grade appeals, including their final
disposition, are maintained by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Academic
Appeals Committee. (Undergraduate Catalog/Graduate Catalog)
