Timeliness of Work: I expect that your work will be turned in on time. Points will be deducted for late work. All work will be submitted via the learning management system.
Academic Honesty: The MSN Program expects the highest level of academic integrity of Master’s students. Academic honesty involves the submission of work that is wholly the student’s own work, unless group work has been authorized. In addition, academic honesty involves the citation of other authors’ works according the 6th edition of the APA Publication Manual. Plagiarism in any aspect of the course requirements results in no credit for that activity.
Examinations are to be wholly the student’s own work.
Examinations: Examinations are time limited, primarily multiple-choice and short answer. The exams may be entered only once. Exams will be open for 14 hours (8am-10pm, closing on the posted date). Examinations must be proctored. Students are responsible for securing proctor sites and submitting the appropriate and complete documentation.
