Academic Policy and Student Resposibilities
A student’s matriculation at La Salle University is a voluntary decision that involves acceptance of the responsibility to perform academically and to behave socially in ways consistent with the goals and objectives of the University. When registering at La Salle, the student accepts University rules and regulations and the authority of the University to exercise disciplinary powers, including suspension and dismissal. The Student Guide to Resources, Rights, and Responsibilities delineates these responsibilities and is available on the University's web site (http://www.lasalle.edu/students/dean/divpub/manuals/sgrrr/). All students are expected to follow the policies contained in the guide.
Students are expected to pursue their studies adhering to the basic principles of academic honesty. The University’s Academic Integrity Policy, which defines academic honesty and the consequences for academic dishonesty, is available on the University’s web site http://www.lasalle.edu/students/dean/divpub/manuals/sgrrr/. Students who are guilty of academic dishonesty may be dismissed from their graduate program.
Additional program-specific guidelines for monitoring students’ academic progress and grades are detailed in the section for each program or in the program’s student handbook. Students are expected to understand and adhere to the individual program standards and handbook policies, as they are amended, and should recognize that these individual program standards may be more specific or rigorous than the overarching university standards.
Students may be expected to undertake research projects as part of their curriculum. Research projects that use human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Research Board.
