    No student shall be compelled to attend class or sit for an examination on a day or time prohibited by his or her religious belief.

    I. Policy on Make-up Work

    The American Nurses Association Code of Ethics (2001) demands that nurses maintain moral worth and dignity through personal integrity and preservation of wholeness of character. This behavior is to be demonstrated in all aspects of a student’s professional activities, including the academic setting.

    Students attending the University of South Florida are awarded degrees in recognition of successful completion of coursework in their chosen fields of study. Each individual is expected to earn his/her degree on the basis of personal effort. Consequently, any form of cheating on examinations or plagiarism on assigned papers constitutes unacceptable deceit and dishonesty. Disruption of the classroom or teaching environment is also unacceptable. This cannot be tolerated in the University community and will be punishable, according to the seriousness of the offense, in conformity with this rule.
