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.

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, [email protected]). 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

Participate in courses regularly to:

Find announcements and updates

Complete assignments on time. Keep in mind that all deadlines use Eastern

Standard Time (EST).

Engage in discussion

Connect with fellow students and faculty

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. 

Contact faculty or student success coordinator with questions or concerns.

Course Policies

The only authorized electronic means of academic, administrative, and co-curricular

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. Keep in mind that all deadlines are set using Eastern Standard

Time (EST). Late assignments will NOT be accepted.

Course Activities and Experiences

Students are expected to:

• Review any assigned reading material and prepare responses to homework assigned.

• Actively participate in activities, assignments, and discussions.

• Evaluate and react to each other’s work in a supportive, constructive manner.

• Complete specific assignments and exams when specified and in a professional manner.

• Utilize learned technologies for class assignments.

• Connect content knowledge from core courses to practical training placement and

activities.
