4. Pedagogy Learning Process


The instructors will not expect students to be passive recipients of information. They will expect
students to participate actively in their own learning. Learning activities will include lectures, class
work, homework exercises, group discussion, writing and some group activities. Both group and
individual work will be expected. Students may also be expected to participate in student-instructor
conferences, small group discussions, audio visual aid presentations and in other methods of
presenting and analyzing information.
Students will also be expected to read the textbooks or other assigned reading outside of class and
to participate in the critical evaluation of the material through small-group and class discussion and
individual writing.

8. Attendance
For undergraduate students, absence is marked at a maximum of 30% of total class time. Final
dismissals (WA) will be posted at the ADU Student Portal.
Final Dismissal will not be waived under any circumstances. Office of the Registrar will only
accept excuse forms to allow the students for their make-up examinations but absence will not be
waived and final dismissals will not be removed from the student's record.
Students may wish to continue to attend if they receive a final dismissal in a course but are not
required to submit assignments or take any exams.
Students will be considered tardy if they do not arrive on time for a lesson or they return late from a
break. Tardiness will be counted as a half absence. Instructors have the right to refuse entry to
students who are more than 15 minutes late, but if entry is permitted, students must enter in such a
way as not to disturb the lesson in progress.
Exams/Tests will be repeated when serious reasons similar to the following take place and
documented evidence are submitted to the Office of the Registrar on the day student returns to
class.

Hospitalization,
Contagious Disease,
Death, may God forbid, of an immediate family member (father, mother, sibling,
husband, son, daughter, grandparent),
Car Accident,
Job Requirement (special assignment), with prior written approval from the Office of
the Registrar

Al Haj

Undergraduate students who miss their examinations and/or tests will bring the excuse for their
absence to the Office of the Registrar the day they return to class.
Al Umra trips are not valid excuses for students to be absent.
Al Haj
If the student wishes to leave for Al Haj, the instructor has to be informed in advance. If a mid-term
exam happens to be scheduled during that period, the student will have the right for a makeup
exam. If a final exam happens to be scheduled during that period, the student will be asked to file
an incomplete with the Office of the Registrar. In this case, the student has to submit evidence that
he/she has been to Al Haj (i.e. passport showing entry date to and/or exit date from the Kingdom of
Saudi Arabia).
9. Academic Integrity
The mission of ADU includes developing students sense of ethics, morality, and social
responsibility. Students at ADU have the fundamental obligation to conduct themselves with utmost
integrity. To ensure an education environment characterized with Academic integrity (AI), ADU
has revised its Academic Integrity Policy (AIP).
The revised Academic Integrity Policy (AIP) copies available on the intranet under the link of the
Office of Academic Integrity (OAI) has identified violations of AI punishable by serious
penalties, including dismissal from ADU. The types of violations identified in AIP, along with
the description and examples of each violation, are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Cheating
Plagiarism
Fabrication of data
Presenting false credentials
Collusion
Free Riding

At the beginning of each semester, your instructor will review the essential elements of AIP in class
and will describe the intrinsic values of compliance, and the consequences of non-compliance (i.e.,
penalties) with the Policy. In addition, OAI undertakes a widespread AI Awareness Campaign at
the beginning of each semester to educate students about AI issues and the ways students can avoid
violations.
In view of resources provided by ADU in this regard, all students are expected to strictly comply
with the tenet of AIP and conduct themselves with highest degree of integrity and ethical conduct.
Students in need of additional information or assistance are requested to seek help from OAI.
Failure to comply with the provisions of AIP will have severe consequences, including dismissal
from ADU.

10. Learning Support Center (LSC)

LSC is free of charge to all ADU students by students mentors as well as faculty.
LSC, which operating under the University College (UC), is an academic support resource
designed to assist students in their academic studies.
LSC is located at the entrance of the library in both male and female sides in both the AD & AA
Campuses.
LSC is open daily from Sunday to Thursday, 10:00am to 5:00pm.
11. Miscellaneous

Mobile phones: A student whose mobile phone rings during class will be asked to
leave the classroom and will receive a half absence. Should this happen during an exam, the
student will not be allowed to retake the exam at another time, while at the same time receiving
a full absence.
Eating/Drinking/Smoking: Students will be requested to refrain from engaging in
these activities while in class.
Only emails from university-provided email accounts will be recognized and used
in this course.
