Policies and Resources

Policies here apply to all ENG 100, ENG 200H, ENG 200 classes. 

Policies

Attendance Policy

To assist students in their transition to college responsibilities, an attendance policy limiting the number of permissible absences is in place.

Students are limited in the number of absences they are permitted for each course they are enrolled in. The allowable number of absences in the fall or spring term is equal to twice the meeting times per week (or four classes in any summer session).

For example, a student enrolled in a course that meets three times a week is permitted only six absences per term. A student exceeding the allowed number of absences will be reported to his or her dean.

Academic Dishonesty

As a Marianist, Catholic university committed to the education of the whole person, The University of Dayton expects all of its students to strive for excellence in scholarship and in character. Every student pledges to uphold the academic integrity of their own education and of the whole University of Dayton community, as well.

To maintain our academic integrity, students pledge to:

  1. Complete all assignments and examinations according to the guidelines provided to me by my instructors,
  2. Avoid plagiarism and any other form of misrepresenting someone else's work as my own,
  3. Adhere to the Standards of Conduct as outlined in the Academic Honor Code.
