The following policies are in effect:
1. ATTENDANCE: Students MUST attend class. Students who miss class will lose valuable points toward their final grade. Each instructor will inform the students of his/her individual point system at the beginning of each class. The IEP follows the University of Northern Colorado’s policy: www.unco.edu/dos/academicConcerns/studentAttendance.html
It is the student’s responsibility to gather and complete missed assignments. Quizzes, presentations, and exams given on days of absences may not be made up unless prior arrangements have been made.
If a student is on a scholarship and misses 4 classes, his or her advisor will be informed.
2. BEING TARDY: Students are allowed three tardies with no questions asked. After the third tardy, students will lose valuable points toward their final grade. Each instructor will inform the students of his/her individual point system at the beginning of each class.
Please remember that coming to class late and unprepared interrupts the education of others and is considered rude and unacceptable behavior in the university setting. When arriving late, please quietly enter the classroom and sit down. If someone is giving a presentation, wait until he or she is finished before entering the classroom. There is no need to knock on the door or ask permission to enter.
3. ADVANCEMENT: Students must earn a grade of 80% or higher to pass a course. If a student does not earn this grade, he/she must repeat the course. The instructors and coordinator of the IEP do not negotiate grades.
4. REPETITION OF COURSES: Students in the IEP have two chances to pass a class. After the first unsuccessful attempt, the student will be placed on academic probation, and advisors will be notified. After the second unsuccessful attempt, the student will be dismissed from the Intensive English Program.
5. COURSE REQUIREMENTS: In addition to the core courses, all undergraduates in the IEP are required to take skill courses. These courses have been designed to further academic success. All graduate students in the IEP are required to take the graduate level courses.
6. ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT: Any form of academic dishonesty is not acceptable in the Intensive English Program classes. Instructors will teach these concepts and provide examples. Students determined to have cheated, plagiarized, or fabricated class materials may fail a class and risk being dismissed from the university.
