Standards of Conduct

The objective of the biology program at Spring Hill College is to prepare you for a postgraduate education, not only in terms of presenting subject matter that you will be expected to know, but also with regard to the expectations and demands that will be placed on you concerning your attitude and conduct.

All students at Spring Hill College are expected to be polite and courteous to their instructors and classmates, arrive to class on time and remain in their seat until class is dismissed, and turn cell phones and pagers off before entering the classroom building. In addition, students are not allowed to bring food or beverages (other than water) into lecture or laboratory.

There will be zero tolerance for cheating in any form. If you engage in an act of academic dishonesty there is a very high probability that you will be caught. Cheating on an exam or major paper will result in a failing grade for the course. Take this warning seriously. Don’t sacrifice your future professional career before it even starts.
