ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

The academic integrity of PATTS College of Aeronautics is the cornerstone of its intellectual community and the institution will not tolerate any form of academic dishonesty. All academic work should result from an individual’s own efforts.

Intellectual contributions from others must be consistently and responsibly acknowledged and evaluated. Academic work completed in any other way is fraudulent. Infractions will be appropriately penalized; students should understand that suspension or expulsion/exclusion from the College is a possible result. This policy will apply to each academic program offered.

Students who enrolled in PATTS are classified as freshmen, transferees or second course-takers, cross enrollees, returning students, foreign students and officially dropped students. Student records are stored in file jackets and are arranged in alphabetical order. These may also be referred to as Student’s Permanent File. Each individual file jackets contains all documents related to each student’s acceptance, academic performance, accomplishments and transfer credentials.
