Each class selects one of its members to be
the class representative. This person serves as the class contact and serves as
"spokesperson" for the class to the Graduate Studies in Management
administrative team. A list of duties of the class representative will be
provided on the evening the representative is elected.
Instructor Late for Class
If an instructor is more than thirty
(30) minutes late for class and prior arrangements have not been made, the class
representative should contact the GSM director (phone numbers in appendix A). If
the class is dismissed, the class representative should collect any assignments
that are due and go over assignments for the next week’s class before the
students are dismissed.
Standards of Conduct
In keeping with Southern Nazarene
University's commitment to intellectual, spiritual and physical wellness, the
use of tobacco is precluded during any class or university activity. Smoking and
other forms of tobacco use are prohibited for all groups meeting on campus. At
the Tulsa Center, students who smoke may do so outside the building, past the
Southern Nazarene University, in agreement with civil laws, forbids the use,
possession, or distribution of mood-altering chemicals including (but not
limited to) amphetamine mixes, barbiturates, hallucinogens, marijuana, cocaine,
PCP, ecstasy, and LSD. Other dangerous and illegal substances are also
forbidden. (See Appendix D, this handbook.). Trafficking in chemicals will
result in immediate expulsion from the university. The medical use of drugs may
be permitted when prescribed by a licensed practicing physician.
Persons desiring help with alcohol or drug-related problems will find
assistance from the SNU Student Development staff or local professional agency.
Estimated times of completion for graduate
programs at Southern Nazarene University do not include necessary accommodations
for students with disabilities as defined by federal regulation. Students who
claim a learning or physical disability must self-identify and provide
documentation of their disability prior to admission to the program if they knew
or should have known to their disability.
Documentation provided to the University of any disability must be less than
three years old and must contain specific recommendations for accommodation
appropriate to the diagnosed disability. Documentation must be provided by a
licensed professional in the area of the claimed disability. Based on such
documentation, in consultation with the graduate office of Southern Nazarene
University, the student will be advised of any program modifications necessary
to complete the compressed format of the graduate curriculum.
If discovery of disability occurs after enrollment, the student will be
referred by the course instructor to the graduate office for assessment and
recommendation. For further information refer to the SNU Catalog.
Students are expected to project a scholastic
demeanor and to interactively respond to class activities. Students, at all
times, are expected to be respectful of their peers, the institution, its
facilities, and personnel. The instructor will be in control and responsible for
all class activities. Up to twenty minutes in ‘break-time’ may be planned and
authorized by the instructor for each four-hour class session.
Appearance and Dress
Students at all locations are expected to be
accountable for maintaining a standard of dress designed to be in harmony with
generally accepted guidelines for good taste and modesty. As an institution that
adheres to Christian principles and seeks to maintain a relaxed, professional,
educational environment, dress may be casual but must appropriately support the
adult, modest, professional atmosphere desired by the faculty and administration
of the University. A faculty member may advise a student when his/her attire is
considered to be inappropriate.
A student ID card is furnished to each
Graduate Studies in Management student the first night of class. The ID card is
required to check out books from the library and may be used to attend sporting
or cultural events on campus.
Confidentiality of Student Records
University is the custodian of many types of student records and recognizes a
duty to protect the confidentiality of information therein. The university
reserves the right to notify the general public of general information about
students, such as address, telephone number, college major, classification and
graduation date, if applicable. All student records are available for official
use to authorized personnel who demonstrate a need to have access to such
The GSM department does not allow students
to leave minor children unsupervised anywhere on the Southern Nazarene
University property. This restriction is based upon the belief that proper care
and protection of children take precedent over educational interests.
The SNU Catalog and SNU Catalog: Graduate
Studies are additional sources of information for the graduate student. A copy
of the SNU Catalog: Graduate Studies may be obtained from the GSM office. The
SNU Catalog may be obtained from the GSM office or undergraduate admissions
office located in the Bresee Hall administration building. Catalog information
is subject to change without notice. Students will be notified of changes made
subsequent to their admission into the program.
In Case of Bad Weather
University policy is that all classes will
meet at scheduled times, even in inclement weather. However, students are
advised to use their own discretion in attending. If students feel their safety
would be at risk, they are advised to not attend. Refer to the attendance policy
for information regarding missed classes.
All motor vehicles driven to campus at any time must be
registered through the business office and must have a properly attached SNU
decal. Registration cards are provided at the organizational meeting; decals
will be issued on the first class night. To receive additional or replacement
decals, contact the GSM office. Students may park in the university parking lots
as indicated on the campus map. Handicapped spaces are reserved for the
handicapped both day and evening; cars parked in handicap spaces not displaying
a handicap sticker will be towed.
