Standards of Conduct
The Standards of Conduct outlined below are for students enrolled
in a Boston University degree program on a military base.
The University considers plagiarism (the use of other
words or ideas without proper documentation) and other forms
of cheating to be serious offenses and endorses serious penalties when
The Metropolitan College Academic Conduct Review Board is charged
with conducting inquiries and formal hearings relating to matters of
academic conduct in accordance with procedures specified by the Metropolitan
College Code of Academic Conduct. Copies of the Code of Academic Conduct
with information on rules, penalties, recourse, and procedures can
be obtained from the Dean of Academic Affairs. Policies and procedures
concerning matters of academic conduct may vary within the different
Schools and Colleges of Boston University. Students enrolled through
Metropolitan College for a course in another School or College of Boston
University are subject to the policies and procedures established by
that School or College.
Students must attend class regularly in order to maintain
satisfactory academic progress. Students may not miss more
than two of the scheduled weekend
classes, which are equivalent to four class meetings.
The University does not condone any behavior that
is unlawful under federal, state, or local laws or that is injurious
person or to property on the premises of the University. Students
whose behavior is found unacceptable under the conditions stated
will be subject to the University’s judicial process. A copy
of the rules, regulations, penalties, recourse, and procedures
can be obtained in the Office of the Dean.
