You should not copy or print another student’s work without permission. Any material (this includes IDEAS and LANGUAGE) from another source must be credited, whether that material is quoted directly, summarized, or paraphrased. In other words, you should respect the work of others and in no way present it as your own.Student Conduct in the ClassroomAccording to the Faculty Guide to Student Conduct in Instructional Settings, "The university is a community of learners.

orderly and cooperative manner." Among other things, cell phones and beepers should be turned off whilein the classroom.

To receive accommodations, students must request them by contacting the Disability Support Services Office on the Monroe Park Campus (828-2253) or the Division for Academic Success on the MCV campus (828-9782).More information is available at Disability Support Servicesor the Division for Academic Success.Any student who has a disability that requires an academic accommodation should schedule a meeting with the instructor at the student's earliest convenience. Additionally, if coursework requires the student towork in a lab environment, the student should advise the instructor or a department chairperson of any concerns that the student may have regarding safety issues related to a disability. Students should follow this procedure for all courses in the academic semester.Statement on Military Short-Term Training or DeploymentIf military students receive orders for short-term training or deployment, they should inform and present their orders to Military Student Services and to their professor(s).
