a.Course Work: Students are required to fulfill all assignments, tests, reports, experiments, etc. at the time scheduled by the teacher.  Major exams will be announced at least three school days before the scheduled date.  Any student conflicts must be brought to the teacher's attention within 24 hours of the announcement; late requests for postponement need not be considered by the teacher.

b.Final Examination: Schedules are posted about two weeks before the end of each semester.  Examinations must be taken at the scheduled times.  If a final examination is missed because of a serious illness or other legitimate reason beyond the student's control, satisfactory evidence must be presented to the Registrar who in consultation with the teacher of the course, will decide whether or not a make-up examination is justified.  No repeat examinations will be given for students who have failed a course.

c.Academic Honesty: Academic honesty is essential to the integrity of the educational process.  Any case of academic dishonesty will be penalized by a failure in the examination, report, etc. or, in serious and/or repeated cases, a failure in the course, or potential dismissal.

d.Attendance: Bethlehem University expects its students to attend classes on a regular basis. The maximum number of absences which a student can have and still continue in the course is the number of times that a class meets in a two week period. For example, if a three-credit hour class meets three times each week the maximum number of absences is six. If the class meets twice a week, then the maximum number of absences is four. This means that the student can be absent for a maximum of 100 minutes for every credit hour.

Absent Notices: Student is given the first notice if the number of absences in a given course is equal to the number of meetings of the course in one week. The second and final notice is given when the number of absences in a given course reaches the maximum permissible limit which is twice the number of meetings of the course in one week.

Continuing absence, which results in excess of the allowable number, causes the student to obtain a "WF" grade.

e.Lateness: Lateness causes a disruption to the class.  A student who arrives after a lecture or laboratory session has begun may be refused admittance to the class, and if not admitted, will be marked absent.

f.Change of Program: Whenever a change is made in a student's official program, whether in a course or by withdrawal from the University, the student must obtain, complete and file the appropriate form in the Registrar's Office.  Students should have a serious reason for any change and must know that their graduation may be delayed as a result of the change.
