CECMEE Policy on Academic Integrity

This document details student / faculty responsibilities and CECMEE-specifics related to the NAU policy in the Student Handbook.

Prerequisite Waiver Policy

You must also complete all prerequisite courses with a C or better.  It is your responsibility to make sure that you have met the prerequisites for a class.  If you do not meet the prerequisites and are enrolled in a class, you will be administratively dropped.  If you feel that your case merits a prerequisite waiver, you should contact your advisor BEFORE START OF CLASSES to discuss the concern. Prerequisite waivers will not be granted for lower-division courses, and will not be considered after the classes start. 

Overrides for Audit or taking 400- and 500- level courses

If you wish to audit a class, if you are a graduate student wanting to take a 400-level class, or if you are an undergraduate student wanting to take a 500-level class, use this form:  Override Form - Audit / Grad taking 400 level / UGrad taking 500 level

Adding a Class / Administrative Drop / Attendance Policy

You will be administratively dropped if you miss the first week of classes.  Classwork starts IMMEDIATELY on day one; missing the first week for any reason will put you behind and it wastes classroom space that another student is waiting for.  Please plan your return-to-campus schedules so that you will not miss classes!  ALSO, because classes start immediately, we do not allow adds after the second class meeting (Thursday after classes start).

Petition to Waive Engineering Program Fee

This fee is charged to all juniors and seniors in the program and is $250/semester.  Under certain conditions, the fee can be waived or reduced; see the petition form for eligibility.  A portion of income from this fee is reserved to support students with financial need; the Financial Aid office determines eligibility and awards financial aid for the fee.

Use of the CECMEE Field Station

The CECMEE Field Station (informally known as "Trotta's Farm") is a multi-use, secured facility.  If you, your team or club would like to use the Field Station, you should first contact the Lab Instructor Gary Slim, as you must receive training and be be authorized to use the facility.  Download the regulations and permit application before seeing Mr. Slim.

Laboratory Safety Procedures

All undergraduate and graduate students using any of the laboratories for any course or individual team/project work MUST complete safety training.  For your classes, your instructor will provide you with the info you need.  For projects, contact your instructor AND Lab Instructor Gary Slim.
