Behavior Policy

AUIS students must at all times exercise care and responsibility in their dealings with others.
Violations of the following standards may be considered Behavioral Violations. This applies to students inside classrooms, on campus (including the dorms), and, in some cases, off campus. Students are reminded that social media are considered to be public.
Please review examples of inside the classroom policies below: 

Inside the Classroom
Students’ success at AUIS requires strong attendance in all classes. All absences are recorded as part of the AUIS Attendance Policy (see Attendance Policy). Professors may, at their discretion, exclude a student from class if the student arrives late.
Classroom Etiquette
Student conduct in class should be respectful to all. Faculty members will caution students who do not conduct themselves in a respectful manner. If inappropriate behavior continues, a teacher may request to have a student leave the class, and the appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken. Students must leave the classroom if asked to do so by professors or administrators.
Students are expected to follow the reasonable instructions of faculty members so that classes proceed in an orderly manner.
Students are to speak English only in class.
Use of electronics in the classroom
Students will be allowed to use electronic devices (e.g. laptops, smart phones) at the discretion of the professor. If allowed, electronic devices should be used only for class-related purposes. Mobile phones should be silenced during class time, if not deactivated.
There are policies for on campus and off campus student conduct as well. Please review the complete list here.
