Academic Policies for Students: Your guide to academic policies.
Academic Integrity: As students, faculty, staff and administrators of Metropolitan State University of Denver, it is our responsibility to uphold and maintain an academic environment that furthers scholarly inquiry, creative activity and the application of knowledge. We will not tolerate academic dishonesty. We will demonstrate honesty and integrity in all activities related to our learning and scholarship. We will not plagiarize, fabricate information or data, cheat on tests or exams, steal academic material, or submit work to more than one class without full disclosure. An act of academic dishonesty may lead to such penalties as reduction of grade, probation, suspension, or expulsion.
Diversity: Metropolitan State University of Denver is committed to becoming the preeminent public urban university in the nation, and believes that placing a high value on diversity and inclusive excellence are essential elements toward reaching this important goal.
Equal Access and Disability Services: Metropolitan State University of Denver is committed to making reasonable accommodations to assist individuals with disabilities in reaching their academic potential. If you have a disability which may impact your performance, attendance, or grades in this class and are requesting accommodations, then you must first register with the Access Center, located in the Plaza Building, Suite 122, 303-556-8387. The Access Center is the designated department responsible for coordinating accommodations and services for students with disabilities. Accommodations will not be granted prior to my receipt of your faculty notification letter from the Access Center. Please note that accommodations are never provided retroactively (i.e., prior to the receipt of your faculty notification letter.) Once I am in receipt of your official Access Center faculty accommodation letter, I would be happy to meet with you to discuss your accommodations. All discussions will remain confidential. Further information is available by visiting the Access Center website.
Harassment: The University prohibits harassment against anyone (including any employee or student) based on the individual’s race, color, gender, national origin, religion, disability, age, veteran or marital status, or sexual orientation, or based on those aspects in an individual’s relatives, friends or associates. Harassment means threats, intimidation or hostile acts.
