any changes in the class schedule or exam schedule.


Academic integrity

cheating
. Furthermore if a student is observed looking on another student’s exam, quiz or
assignment; talking to another student during an exam or quiz; using notes or books not
authorized for use during an exam or quiz; or in any other manner not observing the
“code of
conduct” as written in the Dixie College catalog, disciplinary action will be undertaken.


For the following course policies,
exceptions are subject to the instructor’s discretion:




If a student fails to complete an assignment or exam on the assig
ned date, the instructor
may choose to allow a “make
-
up”, provided there is a
doctor’s certificate stating that
the student was too injured or too ill to participate on the scheduled date.



If a student is participating in a Dixie State College Official

event that conflicts
with the schedule, they
must see the instructor IN ADVANCE of their missing the
deadlines

to arrange alternative dates.
