Also, a valid documented excuse needs to be presented within 48 hours as per University Guidelines    In case of student absence when exams are returned, the instructor will keep the exam for 2 weeks      SECTION III : Pol icies and Students’ Responsibilities   Academic rules and regulations are to be followed according to the policies and guidelines of the University, as laid out in the catalogue (particularly the sections on Attendance and Academic Behavior). 1. Students are expected to attend all classes and laboratory sessions. 2. Absence, whether excused or not, from any class or laboratory session does not excuse students from their responsibility for the work done or for any announcements made during their absence. 3. A student who is near missing one-sixth of the course sessions will be receiving a written warning from the instructor. Once the number of missed sessions reaches one-sixth of the course sessions, the instructor notifies the student in writing and copies the registrar that it is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from the course before the end of the drop period, otherwise he will earn a WF as a final grade for the course. If the number of missed sessions accumulates to more than one-sixth after the drop deadline, the student will receive as well a grade of WF. A WF grade is counted as a numerical grade of 40 for the course in computing the student’s averages. It is expected from the students to carry themselves with the utmost ethical and professional manner during lectures, and among each other. The University of Balamand is committed to a policy of honesty in academic affairs. Examples of conduct for which students may be subject to academic and/or disciplinary  penalties including expulsion are: 1. Cheating, whereby non-permissible written, visual, or oral assistance, including that obtained from another student, is utilized on examinations, course assignments, or projects. The unauthorized possession or use of examination or course-related material may also constitute cheating. 2. Plagiarism, whereby another person’s work is deliberately used or appropriated without any indication of the source, thereby attempting to convey the impression that such work is the student’s own.   Note: A student who has assisted another student in any of the aforementioned breaches of standards shall be considered equally culpable. In case of cheating or plagiarism, the instructor may take appropriate academic action ranging from loss of credit for a specific assignment, examination, or project to removal from the course with grade of 40. Additionally, the instructor may request disciplinary action through the Disciplinary Committee as outlined in the Student Life section.
