Failure to read this information, negligence, personal factors, or contradictory information from any sources are not acceptable grounds for seeking exemption from these policies and procedures.
Students are expected to conduct themselves responsibly, honestly, and with due consideration for others while enrolled in LiiVE Summer Program and on FIU property, as well as in all of their interactions and communications with members of LiiVE and the FIU community while living on campus.
LiiVE's Administrative Board reviews the actions of students charged with harassment; fraud; infringing on the rights of others; violating the rules and regulations of LiiVE and of FIU as it relates to non-credit education; behaving inappropriately towards LiiVEs' and of FIU's faculty, staff, or fellow students; the unauthorized use of LiiVE and FIU facilities or equipment, including computer resources; the unauthorized recording, sale, or purchase of lectures or other instructional materials; destroying or defacing University property; misrepresenting themselves or their University affiliation; or disturbing orderly academic functions and processes.
The unlawful possession, use, or distribution of drugs and alcohol by any student is prohibited. Students who are found to have violated these rules are subject to disciplinary action, including possible withdrawal from a course or program, or suspension from the Summer School. Because students are expected to show good judgment at all times, not every kind of misconduct or behavioral expectation is listed in this section.
The Program Director serves the Summer School community as a resource for information and guidance in the areas of student life, LiiVE policies and procedures.
As part of your first registration, you create your participants record. You must provide your full legal name, date of birth, gender, native language, e-mail address, postal mailing address, and emergency contact information. You are responsible for the accuracy of all biographical and contact information that you provide, or another person provides on your behalf, both online and on all paper forms and applications. Honesty in all communications, including self-representation, is a requirement of student enrollment. Submission of fraudulent information is subject to review by LiiVE's Administrative Board and may be grounds for disciplinary action.
The name you provide when registering must match exactly the full legal name printed on your passport or other government-issued photo identification. Your LiiVE ID card cannot be issued if the name in the Summer School system is different from the name on your government-issued photo ID. Please check that your name and biographical information are correct in your online profile. To report a legal name change, a birth date or other identification number correction, or changes to gender or other biographical information you must contact send it to the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All critical school and course communications are sent via e-mail.
To protect the privacy and security of your participant records, your e-mail address must be unique to you and not shared with any other person. Duplicate e-mail addresses will be inactivated. Beginning in mid-March, you are eligible to create a unique LiiVE user account. Your LiiVE user account will remain active throughout your term of enrollment and expire at the end of the program for which you are registered.
You are responsible for maintaining accurate contact information (e-mail address, postal address, telephone numbers) with LiiVE.
LiiVE reserves the right to prohibit or cancel your registration if you do not attend first class meetings or participate when classes begin. Late work may be submitted only with instructor approval and according to instructor policies. Registering late does not warrant an exception to this policy.
You are prohibited from using recording devices of any kind in your courses. Questions about this policy should be directed to the Program Director.
If you are consistently not prepared for class, fail to attend class or participate, grossly neglect coursework, lack the necessary level of English proficiency to be successful in the course, or your continued enrollment is disruptive to the progress of instruction, you may, after written warning by the instructor, be excluded from the summer program.
If you are excluded from the summer program, you may no longer participate in any way, including attending classes, participating online, taking exams, and submitting work. You are not eligible for a tuition refund for the program or for any diploma or certificate.
You may be administratively withdrawn by the Program Director of the LiiVE Summer Program in the following circumstances:
LiiVE expects you to understand and maintain high standards of academic integrity and to take advantage of resources to support academic integrity. Breaches of academic integrity are subject to review and disciplinary action by the LiiVE's Administrative Board. Examples include the following:
Plagiarism is the theft of someone else's ideas and work. It is the incorporation of facts, ideas, or specific language that are not common knowledge, are taken from another source, and are not properly cited.
Whether you copy verbatim or simply rephrase the ideas of another without properly acknowledging the source, the theft is the same. A computer program written as part of your academic work is, like a paper, expected to be your original work and subject to the same standards of representation. In the preparation of work submitted to meet course, program, or school requirements-whether a draft or a final version of a paper, project, take-home exam, computer program, placement exams, application essay, oral presentation, or other work-you must take great care to distinguish your own ideas and language from information derived from sources. Sources include published and unpublished primary and secondary materials, the Internet, and information and opinions of other people.
You are expected to follow the standards of proper citation and to avoid plagiarism. Please consult the FIU Guide to Using Sources, prepared by the FIU School of Communiation + Journalism, for a helpful introduction to all matters related to source use: identifying and evaluating secondary sources, incorporating them into your work, documenting them correctly, and avoiding plagiarism. We also recommend that you complete our online tutorials "Using Sources, Five Scenarios" and "Using Sources, Five Examples" before you submit any written work this summer. These tutorials take 15 minutes each to complete, and they will help you learn what you don't know about using sources responsibly.
In cases of suspected plagiarism, student papers may be submitted to a private contracted service that reviews content for originality. Results from this review may be used to inform the Dean of Students Office in its inquiry. Papers submitted to this service are retained by that company and become part of their database of materials used in future searches. No personal identifying information is submitted or retained by the service.
Collaboration on assignments is prohibited unless explicitly permitted by the instructor. When collaboration is permitted, students must acknowledge all collaboration and its extent in all submitted coursework. Collaboration includes the use of professional or expert editing or writing services, as well as statistical, coding, or other outside assistance. Because it is assumed that work submitted in a course is the student's own unless otherwise permitted, students should be very clear about how they are working with others and what types of assistance, if any, they are receiving. In cases where assistance is approved, the student is expected to specify, upon submission of the assignment, the type and extent of assistance that was received and from whom. The goal of this oversight is to preserve the status of the work as the student's own intellectual product.
You may not copy another student's assignment, computer program or parts of a program, or exam. To avoid any suggestions of improper behavior during an exam, you should not communicate with other students during the exam. Neither should you refer to any books, papers, or use electronic devices during the exam without the permission of the instructor or proctor. All electronic devices must be turned off during an exam.
Information stored on a computer system or sent electronically over a network is the private property of the individual who created it. Examination, collection, or dissemination of that information without authorization from the owner is a violation of the owner's right to control his or her property. Computers and networks provide mechanisms for protecting private information; attempts to circumvent these mechanisms to gain unauthorized access to private information are treated as violations of privacy.
You are eligible for FIU computer accounts for primarily educational use. When you use University computer facilities and the campus-wide communication network, you assume responsibility for their appropriate use. Computer accounts are considered to have tangible value. Attempts to circumvent the accounting system, to use the accounts of others without authorization, or to use accounts for anything other than their intended purposes are all forms of attempted theft. You should not disclose account passwords or otherwise make the account available to others. Use of FIU's computers and networks for commercial purposes without authorization is prohibited.
Do not interfere with the functioning of a computer, or disrupt or distract others using a computer. Use of an e-mail system to send fraudulent, annoying, or obscene messages is prohibited. Similarly, messages must not misrepresent the identity of the sender, be sent as chain letters, or broadcast indiscriminately to large numbers of people.
LiiVE expects you to abide by FIU's rules and responsibilities for the appropriate use of computers and networks since you will live at FIU housing. These rules and responsibilities may be viewed online on the FIU Information Technology website.
Certain computer misconduct is prohibited under Florida law and is, therefore, subject to criminal penalties. Such misconduct includes knowingly gaining unauthorized access to a computer system or database, falsely obtaining electronic services or data without payment of required charges, and destroying electronically processed, stored, or in-transit data.
LiiVE and FIU have numerous logos and shields (insignias) and school names. LiiVE Summer Program students are not permitted to use the LiiVE, FIU or LiiVE Summer Program insignias on letterhead, business cards, electronic signatures, websites, blogs, and other forms of communication, except under the circumstances detailed below. Violation of these policies may result in disciplinary action.
This policy is in accordance with the LiiVE and FIU Trademark.
The LiiVE Administrative Board reviews cases involving students who are alleged to have violated LiiVE or FIU housing policies. Cases may include breaches of integrity, misuse of computer facilities, submission of fraudulent information, and poor or inappropriate conduct, as well as cases of participants neglecting coursework, or behave irresponsibly and recklessly while enrolled in the LiiVE Summer Program.
The Administrative Board may, after considering the seriousness of a case, take any action it deems appropriate.
The range of sanctions includes formal admonishment; probation; the revocation of a participant's right of access to LiiVE or University facilities or buildings, including on-campus housing and mandatory withdrawal from the Summer School. The decision of the Administrative Board will supersede any registration changes a student with pending disciplinary or administrative proceedings may make, including a course withdrawal.
Students who are required to withdraw from LiiVE summer program are not issued any refunds.
