Student Responsibilities

 The student’s responsibilities are to:

  • Review and understand the information provided in the UNK Dual Enrollment Student Handbook and on the UNK Dual Enrollment website.
  • Know the application, registration, drop and withdrawal deadlines for the UNK Dual Enrollment Program.  It is the student’s responsibility to meet these deadlines. 
  • Complete the UNK application for admission as a first time Dual Enrollment student. The application is located at www.unk.edu//apply.php.  The application fee must be paid at this time. An Admission representative will visit your high school to assist you with the application.  Contact your school counselor for the specific date the UNK Admission representative will visit your school.  Returning students will not fill out an admission application but must meet with the Admissions representative before requesting registration. 
  • Once the student has submitted the application for admission, the student must submit a request for registration with parental consent. The UNK Admissions representative will assist with the registration request.  The UNK Registrar’s Office will enroll students in the college class(es) at which time, tuition and fees will be charged to the student’s account.  The student is responsible for sharing billing information with parents.
  • Access MyBLUE - The interactive web interface that contains the official student information for all UNK students is called MyBLUE.  The system allows students to obtain information on registration, grades, class schedules, billing, payment options, account balances, transcripts and financial aid.  All admitted students have access to MyBLUE and are required to log in to view student information and final grades with the NU ID number assigned at the time of admission and a password that is created by the student.  To access MyBLUE go to http://myblue.unk.edu.  For assistance logging in, contact the UNK Technology Help Desk at 308-856-8363 or email unkhelpdesk@unk.edu.
  • Maintain complete and accurate student information including keeping track of your NUID and password. You can update your information in MyBLUE.
  • Access LoperMail - Once enrolled in classes, a student email account will be set up on the UNK email system in an overnight process.  This is the student’s LoperMail account.  It is the sole source of communication between students and the university and it should be accessed regularly.  MyBLUE eBill notifications will be sent to the student’s LoperMail account. To set up LoperMail, contact the UNK Technology Help Desk at 308-865-8363 or email unkhelpdesk@unk.edu.
  • You are responsible for formally withdrawing from the college class if you do not want the UNK credit.  Your parent, guardian, high school instructor or high school counselor cannot request the withdrawal on your behalf.  A student failing to complete all course requirements and failing to officially withdraw from a class by the established deadline will receive a grade of F.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the final grade on your academic transcript by accessing final grades on MyBLUE immediately following the conclusion of your course. 

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

The maintenance of academic honesty and integrity is a vital concern of the University community. Any student found in violation of the standards of academic integrity may be subject to both academic and disciplinary sanctions. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. Cheating: Copying or attempting to copy from an academic test or examination of another student; using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information, notes, study aids or other devices for an academic test, examination or exercise; engaging or attempting to engage the assistance of another individual in misrepresenting the academic performance of a student; or communicating information in an unauthorized manner to another person for an academic test, examination or exercise.
  2. Fabrication and falsification: Falsifying or fabricating any information or citation in any academic exercise, work, speech, test or examination. Falsification is the alteration of information, while fabrication is the invention or counterfeiting of information.
  3. Plagiarism: Presenting the work of another as one's own (i.e., without proper acknowledgment of the source) and submitting examinations, theses, reports, speeches, drawings, laboratory notes or other academic work in whole or in part as one's own when such work has been prepared by another person or copied from another person.
  4. Abuse of academic materials and/or equipment: Destroying, defacing, stealing, or making inaccessible library or other academic resource material.
  5. Complicity in academic dishonesty: Helping or attempting to help another student to commit an act of academic dishonesty.
  6. Falsifying grade reports: Changing or destroying grades, scores or markings on an examination or in an instructor's records.
  7. Misrepresentation to avoid academic work: Misrepresentation by fabricating an otherwise justifiable excuse such as illness, injury, accident, etc., in order to avoid or delay timely submission of academic work or to avoid or delay the taking of a test or examination.
  8. Other Acts of Academic Dishonesty: Academic units and members of the faculty may prescribe and give students prior written notice of additional standards of conduct for academic honesty in a particular course, and violation of any such standard shall constitute the Code.

Under Section 2.9 of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska, the respective colleges of the University have responsibility for addressing student conduct solely affecting the college. Just as the task of inculcating values of academic honesty resides with the faculty, the college faculty are entrusted with the discretionary authority to decide how incidents of academic dishonesty are to be resolved.
