    • When an issue is brought to our attention, Tuskegee University will take appropriate action to seek resolution. Students are encouraged to pursue Tuskegee University’s internal grievance procedures for any complaints before contacting external sources for resolution. Often, it is the case that communication with the course instructor is the most direct route to resolving issues. If an issue cannot be resolved at that level, a student may contact the academic unit for guidance.  If the issue involves one of the following, please click on the corresponding link to review the University-wide policy:

You may be required to authenticate your identity by providing at least one form of government-issued identification and/or by attending one or more mandatory online skype meetings. Misrepresentation of an academic or non-academic nature is a serious violation of the Student Code of Conduct and will be reported to the appropriate administrative official and adjudicated in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. If you are found responsible for violating the Student Code of Conduct, disciplinary sanctions will be imposed including disciplinary probation, suspension, expulsion, and/or dismissal.
    • Disciplinary sanctions may appear on your official academic transcript. Students are responsible for procedures and policies contained and addressed in the Tuskegee University Student Handbook
  • Netiquette Expectations
    • According to The Core Rules of Netiquette by Virginia Shea, Netiquette (known as "Internet etiquette") is a catch-all term for the conventions of politeness and respect recognized in live chats, discussions, and emails. In online learning, Netiquette includes a set of guidelines that everyone should follow to promote appropriate online communication. Here are a few guidelines to follow when posting in online chats, discussions, and emails:
      • Maintain a positive tone: When communicating online, we often forget that we are communicating with other human beings because we only see a computer screen. You do not see facial expressions, body language, or hear the tone of voice when you read messages. It's easy to misinterpret your correspondent's meaning, so always stop and think about your response before hitting submit. Always ask yourself, "Would I say that to a person’s face?"
      • Use appropriate grammar and structure: In other words, avoid using "R U" instead of "are you." There are some students in the class that may not understand this type of communication and it does not enhance anyone’s writing or vocabulary skills. Emoticons are fine as long as they are appropriate. A smile :) is welcome, anything offensive is not.
      • Never use all CAPS: In online communication, caps are known as shouting, so refrain from using them.
      • Avoid personal attacks and flames: Do not respond to personal attacks or Flames when responding online. If you believe that you are being attacked, please email your instructor.  
      • Avoid Offensive language: Cursing, racial slurs, and other types of language that would not be appropriate in a face-to-face class are also inappropriate online.
      • Be respectful: Always be polite and respectful in your discussions. Discussions are constructed so that they will allow you to think critically and offer theory plus opinion. There will be differences in opinions. There will be many viewpoints. Remember: Students taking online courses come from different parts of the country or even other countries. Cultural differences allow us to appreciate different perspectives.

  • Plagiarism Statement
    • According to the Tuskegee University Student Handbook, "Any student found guilty of academic misconduct shall be subject to disciplinary action." Plagiarism is a type of academic misconduct. If you plagiarize, you will receive an F in the course, and your name will be forwarded to the Vice President of Academic Affairs for possible further disciplinary action. "To plagiarize" means to steal somebody else's words, ideas, creations, conclusions, or data and offer them as your own. A common example is using another person's written words‐whether published or not‐(such as from a book, magazine, newspaper, website, class assignment, essay, etc.) or spoken words (such as from a speech, conversation, video, lecture, etc.) without acknowledging the source of information and without complete and proper citation. Another example of plagiarism is the use of graphic arts, statistics, graphs, charts, and facts from a published or unpublished source (including a website, a CD‐ROM, or any other electronic source) without acknowledging the source of information and without complete and proper citation. For example, the previous paragraph was paraphrased from a New Mexico State University website document. The appropriate APA citation for acknowledging this source is as follows: Plagiarism: What it is and how to avoid it. (2008). Retrieved July 11, 2013, from the New Mexico State University website:
