CEU Professional Development Policies and Procedures

Professional Development Registration

Registration for the Professional Development programs typically require students to pre-register for courses. Students may register for professional development classes online typically through the first class meeting of each course, unless otherwise noted by CEU.

If you have questions or for more information, please call 909.869.2288.

Student Conduct and Discipline

It is expected that all students are enrolled for serious educational pursuits and that their conduct will preserve an atmosphere of learning. All students are expected to assume the responsibilities of citizenship in the campus community. Association in such community is purely voluntary, and students may withdraw from it any time that they consider the obligations of membership disproportionate to the benefits. While enrolled, students are subject to university authority, which includes the prerogative of dismissing students whose conduct is inimical to the aims of an institution of higher education.

Rules of student conduct are included in the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, beginning at Section 41301.

A student who violates university policies or regulations is subject to disciplinary action which can result in a warning, reprimand, probation, suspension, or expulsion. Procedures under which the university may take disciplinary action against a student are specified by the Chancellor of the California State University. These procedures are on file in the Office of Judicial Affairs, Building 15, Room 17.

Inappropriate conduct by students or by applicants for admission is subject to discipline as provided in Sections 41301 through 41304 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations.

Incompletes and Withdrawals

I

Incomplete Authorized (“I” Grade) Procedures:

  • An Incomplete Authorized (“I” Grade) signifies that not all of the requirements of a course have been completed in the prescribed time period, but that due to justified reasons, the instructor has determined that work can be completed at a later date within some agreed upon conditions.
  • The student must contact the instructor before the last day of the course to discuss the requirements to change the grade.
  • The instructor must notify CEU Registration of the issuance of the “I” grade. The instructor must also determine the student’s grade withoutthe outstanding assignments, and must report that grade as a default.

Failure to complete the assigned work within 30 days immediately following the end of the course will result in the grade of “I” being converted to the default grade specified above, or a grade of “F” if no default grade is reported.

W

Withdrawal: A “W” cannot be recorded unless the student provides a written request to the CEU Registration Office.

WU

Withdrawal Unauthorized: A "WU" indicates that an enrolled student did not withdraw from the course and also failed to complete course requirements.  It is used when, in the opinion of the instructor, completed assignments or course activities or both were insufficient to make normal evaluation of academic performance possible.
