Student Code of Conduct:

In order to provide an environment conducive to learning, the student must feel safe to engage in a free exchange of ideas. Any behavior, action, or event that interferes with learning, in either an online or face-to-face environment will not be tolerated. Disruptive behavior includes, but is not limited to: inappropriate dress, verbal or physical abuse, or signs of being under the influence of a chemical substance. The instructor is the sole judge of what is appropriate in the class. Individuals affecting the learning or teaching process may be removed from the classroom for any length of time deemed appropriate to ensure a positive learning environment for all students. If the infraction is severe or continuing, an administrative withdrawal may be requested by the instructor to the Assistant Vice President of the instructional unit, and with approval from the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Policies and procedures concerning both nonacademic and academic misconduct are located in the current ENMU-R Student Handbook.

Technical Requirements:

Most ENMU-Roswell courses require reliable internet access, Adobe Acrobat Reader, a word processing program which is able to save .doc or .docx files, e-mail communication, the ability to download and attach documents, basic word processing skills, and the use of the Canvas LMS.

Withdrawal/Attendance Policy:

Students may withdraw online from a course and/or completely withdraw from the University between the last day to register (end of the Drop/Add period) and the Friday of Week 10 of the regular semester, or the date designated in the semester course schedule.

Students with registration holds on their accounts; i.e. Special populations, student on academic probation or warning will not have the ability to withdraw from a course online. In this case, the student will be required to initiate the withdrawal with a signature from the designated instructor of the course or Program Director. The Assistant Vice President of the educational area of study will approve the withdrawal. In the absence of the area Assistant Vice President, the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs will approve the withdrawal. Upon obtaining the proper signatures and approval, the withdrawal will be forwarded to the Office of Admissions and Records for processing. A withdrawal will not be considered complete until the Office of Admissions and Records receives and processes it.

A grade of “W” will be posted for a course from which a student has officially withdrawn. Official withdrawals will count as attempted hours at the university, but will not count as a punitive grade in the calculation of the semester or overall GPA. Because a “W” grade counts in attempted hours for the term, and overall, it is very important to discuss plans to withdraw from a course with the Financial Aid Office staff, as a withdrawal from a course could affect future financial aid eligibility.

Refunds will be calculated for withdrawals according to the refund schedule/dates in the class schedule for the applicable semester.
