Students are expected to attend classes regularly.
During a semester, if a student accumulates more than 5 unexcused absences for a 3 credit course, more than 3 unexcused absences for a 2 credit course, or more than 1 unexcused absence for a 1 credit course, the student is subject
to academic failure and loss of immigration status regardless of his academic score based on tests, quizzes, and other coursework.
During a semester, if a student accumulates more than 15 unexcused absences, the student is subject to expulsion.
During a regular summer session course, if the student accumulates more than 2 days of unexcused absence, the student will be subject to academic failure regardless of his academic score based on tests, quizzes, and other coursework.
Every 3 cases of unexcused tardiness will be officially counted as 1 unexcused absence.
Each case of unexcused tardiness or unexcused absence will result in a fine payable to the school business office.
Professors may include additional attendance requirements, as they feel appropriate, within the course syllabus.
The above principles apply to all students, including auditing students.
Participation differs from attendance. While a learner may be in attendance for either online or onsite programs, the participation may not be exemplary. Participation in a class involves being interactive with fellow learners and
the faculty member whether in discussion, activities, or projects. Participation in each course will vary depending on the circumstances.

Academic Honesty is an important asset for both an institution of higher learning and an individual learner. A student must always submit work that represents his or her original words or ideas. If any words or ideas are used that
do not represent the student’s original words or ideas, the student must cite all relevant sources. The student should also make clear the extent to which such sources were used. Words or ideas that require citations include, but
are not limited to, all hardcopy or electronic publications, whether copyrighted or not, and all verbal or visual communication when the content of such communication clearly originates from an identifiable source. Academic dishonesty
Having a tutor or friend complete a portion of your assignments.
Having a reviewer make extensive revisions to an assignment.

EUCON International University views toleration of cheating as morally reprehensible. As part of the University’s effort to encourage the highest standards of personal integrity, cheating in any form will not be tolerated. This is consistent with the clear, biblical condemnation of dishonesty in its many forms and emphasizes the Scriptural call for honesty, not only in the sight of the Lord but also in the sight of men (II Corinthians 8:21). Because cheating is a serious offense, students found cheating will be subject to severe academic and disciplinary action, which may include academic failure of the course and expulsion from the college, as specific circumstances warrant. The Academic Committee will determine the disciplinary action to be taken on a case by case basis.
