Requirements and Policies
Academic Integrity/Plagiarism
At a Christian liberal arts university committed to the pursuit of truth and
understanding, any act of academic dishonesty is especially distressing and cannot be
tolerated. In general, academic dishonesty involves the abuse and misuse of
information or people to gain an undeserved academic advantage or evaluation. The
common forms of academic dishonesty include:
Cheating – using deception in the taking of tests or the preparation of written
work, using unauthorized materials, copying another person’s work with or without
consent, or assisting another in such activities.
Lying – falsifying, fabricating, or forging information in either written, spoken, or
video presentations.
Plagiarism—using the published writings, data, interpretations, or ideas of another
without proper documentation
Plagiarism includes copying and pasting material from the internet into
assignments without properly citing the source of the material.
Episodes of academic dishonesty are reported to the Vice President for Academic
Affairs. The potential penalty for academic dishonesty includes a failing grade on a
particular assignment, a failing grade for the entire course, or charges against the
student with the appropriate disciplinary body.
Attendance Policy
Course enrollment and participation will be monitored and verified for all students
during the first two weeks of classes. Lack of participation during this time may
jeopardize enrollment status. Each student is expected to meet course expectations by
completing the coursework required each week. Active participation and staying abreast
of the material is essential to success. Program specific attendance policies may still
apply.
Executive Residency Attendance Policy
Attendance to each Executive Residency class session is mandatory. Students may
make-up no more than one (1) residency session throughout the duration of their
academic program. Missing a second residency will result in the student being
dismissed from the University.
Each student must be in attendance for the entire duration of the required residency
weekend. Late arrivals and/or early departures are not permitted. Punctuality is
important as each student is required to have the documented in-seat time per course
requirements.
A missed session will result in the student attending a make-up session, and paying a
$300 Residency Make-Up fee. In addition, the student may be asked for documentation
from the program department providing an explanation as to why the schedule
residency session was missed. Make-Up sessions must be completed prior to the end of
the term. Noncompliance with this policy will result in dismissal from the executive
program.
Participation Policy
Study after study has linked successful academic performance with good class
participation. Those who assume positions of responsibility must “show up” in
order to be effective. Therefore, students are expected to actively participate in
intelligent discussion of assigned topics in all areas (Discussion Board Activities,
Synchronous Sessions, Forums, Shared Papers, etc.) to help process course material
and/or to demonstrate understanding of course content. Point adjustments will be
taken for non-participation.
Disability Accommodations
University of the Cumberlands accepts students with certified disabilities and provides
reasonable accommodations for their certified needs in the classroom, in housing, in
food service or in other areas. For accommodations to be awarded, a student must
submit a completed Accommodations Application form and provide documentation of
the disability to the Disability Services Coordinator (Mr. Jacob Ratliff, Boswell Campus
Center, Student Services Office Suite, jacob.ratliff@ucumberlands.edu). When all
paperwork is on file, a meeting between the student and the Coordinator will be
arranged to discuss possible accommodations before accommodations are formally
approved. Students must then meet with the Coordinator at the beginning of each
semester before any academic accommodations can be certified for that term.
Certifications for other accommodations are normally reviewed annually.
Academic Appeal
Both undergraduate and graduate students have the right to challenge a grade. If
discussions with the course instructor and department chair do not lead to a satisfactory
conclusion, students may file a formal written appeal with the Vice President for
Academic Affairs, who will forward the appeal to the chair of the Academic Appeals
Committee. This formal written appeal must be filed by the end of the 4th week of
classes in the next regular term following the term in which the course in question was
taken. The Academic Appeals Committee then gathers information from the student, the
instructor, and any other relevant parties. The Committee will deliver its
recommendation on the complaint to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. After
reviewing this recommendation and concurring or amending it, the Vice President for
Academic Affairs will inform the student and instructor of the disposition of the
complaint no later than the last day of classes of the term in which the complaint was
filed. Records of all actions regarding academic grade appeals, including their final
disposition, are maintained by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Academic
Appeals Committee. (Undergraduate Catalog/Graduate Catalog)
Student Responsibilities
Students should:
Use University of the Cumberlands email system for all academic, administrative,
and co-curricular communication between faculty, staff and peers.
Check for email and class announcements using iLearn (primary) and University of
the Cumberlands webmail (secondary) daily.
Demonstrate Cumberlands Character in and outside the classroom per the
University Mission & Vision
Ensure you have consistent required technology for the course

Find announcements and updates
Complete assignments on time. Keep in mind that all deadlines use Eastern

Present written work in an academic and professional manner.
Take examinations on the designated dates and times. Students should make
arrangements with faculty before the designated date for any needed
accommodations.

Course Policies
The only authorized electronic means of academic, administrative, and cocurricular communication between University of the Cumberlands and its
students is through the UCumberlands email system (i.e. Webmail). Each
student is responsible for monitoring his/her University email account
frequently. This is the primary email account used to correspond with you
directly by the University; imperative program information is sent to this
email account specifically from campus and program office.
Students should check for e-mail and class announcements using iLearn
(primary) and University of the Cumberlands webmail (secondary).
Students are expected to find out class assignments for missed classes and
make up missed work.
Students are expected to find out if any changes have been made in the
class or assignment schedule.
Written work must be presented in a professional manner. Work that is not
submitted in a professional manner will not be evaluated and will be
returned as unacceptable.
There is a craft to writing. Spelling, grammar, punctuation and diction
(word usage) are all tools of that craft. Writing at the collegiate level
will show careful attention to these elements of craft. Work that does
not exhibit care with regard to these elements will be considered as
inadequate for college writing and graded accordingly.
Students are expected to take the examinations on the designated dates. If
you are unable to take the exam on the scheduled date and know in
advance, you are to make arrangements with your professor before the
designated date. If you miss the exam, you must have a legitimate reason as
determined by your professor.
Recognizing that a large part of professional life is meeting deadlines, it is
necessary to develop time management and organizational skills. Failure to meet
the course deadlines may result in penalties.
If the first discussion response is late, you will lose 20%.
Discussion peer replies are NOT accepted late.
Welcome Discussion NOT accepted late
Plagiarism quiz NOT accepted late.
Week’s 1 – 15 problem set may be handed in up to 3 days late for 20% off.
