Student Conduct Policy
All members of the School community are responsible for their conduct to ensure that they do not harass any other member(s) of the School community, or persons associated with the School. The School expects a high standard of personal conduct from its students.
- Students may be excluded from classes by the instructor for reasons of excessive absence or disruptive behavior.
- Students may be excluded from classes by administrative action if they fail to comply with School regulations.
- Students are, in every respect, expected to adhere to the ethics of the professional program in which they are enrolled. Anyone who does not do so jeopardizes the opportunity to continue his or her studies at the School.
- Students who suspect ethical violations are bound by the ethics of the professional program in which they are enrolled to discuss the suspected violation(s) with the person(s) perceived to be in violation and/or to file a report, as appropriate.
- Knowledge of students’ ethical violations affecting the School must be immediately discussed with the person(s) perceived to be in violation and/or reported to the Academic Vice President. Appropriate confidentiality will be maintained.
- Appeals related to decisions regarding class conduct may be made to the Academic Vice President. If a second appeal is requested, an ad hoc, problem-solving committee, including representatives of the faculty, administration and student body, will be appointed by the President to consider the matter.
- Plagiarism is not tolerated.
