Specifically, the standards reflect what the university and the KPCOM graduate programs administration believe are reasonable expectations required of future professionals in performing common functions. Honor and integrity are essential and depend on the exemplary behavior of the individuals in their relations with classmates, faculty members, and colleagues. This includes accountability to oneself and to relationships with fellow students, future colleagues, and faculty members who come under the student’s care or contribute to the student’s training and growth, as well as members of the general public. This applies to personal conduct that reflects on a student’s honesty and integrity in both academic and nonacademic settings, whether it involves an NSU-sponsored activity or not. All students must have the capacity to manage their lives and anticipate their own needs. Upon accepting admission to the KPCOM and its graduate degree programs, each student subscribes to and pledges complete observance to NSU’s Student Code of Conduct Policies. A violation of these standards is an abuse of the trust placed in every student and could lead to suspension or dismissal. Students are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 for all graduate coursework. Failure to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 will result in academic probation for one semester. Students on academic probation must meet with their financial aid representative to determine how this status impacts their financial aid awards. Specific policies pertaining to those students—who are unable to raise their cumulative GPA to 3.0 at the end of the probation semester and to students whose cumulative GPA falls below for a second time—are published in the appropriate section of the KPCOM Student Handbook for each degree program.
