Basic rules at CELCIS
1. Students are expected to be in class every day. If students miss the first few days of class or the last few days of class:
- Student will be marked absent.
- Student will miss the placement tests (beginning of semester).
- Student may miss important tests and assignments (beginning and end of semester).
- Student's grade may go down (if they don’t finish and hand in tests and assignments).
- In extreme cases, a student may be dismissed from the program.
2. Students are expected to complete all assignments, tests, and assessments during the semester.
3. Class work ends on the last day of class. No work can be submitted after the last day of class.
4. Students cannot choose their teachers at CELCIS.
5. Students cannot choose their classrooms.
6. Students are not allowed to cheat during tests or quizzes, or on research papers.
For example, during tests students are not allowed to look at their phones, look at a classmate’s answers, or look at a paper that has the answers written on it. Students are not allowed to copy from another source on research papers. Students caught cheating will receive low grades and will be reported to the WMU Office of Student Conduct.
7. All students are expected to show respect to their teachers, classmates, and the CELCIS office staff.
- Students are never allowed to shout at teachers or use violent words or actions in the classroom or CELCIS office. Students who behave like this will face disciplinary action and may be dismissed from the program.
- Disruptive behavior of any kind is not tolerated in the classroom. If a student disturbs other students by refusing to participate, talking loudly and out of turn, or in any other inappropriate way, the student will be reported to the WMU Office of Student Conduct.
8. The CELCIS director and assistant director cannot and will not change students’ grades.
