Conduct and Discipline
The policy of AIID places responsibility on the students. Students are expected to conduct themselves with discretion and with regard for their fellow students and the school. Students must observe school regulations, devote themselves earnestly to their academic pursuits, and be honorable and upright in their living as well as their association with the school. A student who violates school regulations, interferes with other students’ ability to learn or be taught, is caught cheating, is boisterous, obscene or vulgar, attends school under the influence of alcohol or narcotics, or fails to make timely payments of monies due the school will be placed on probation or terminated at the discretion of the Director.
Academic dishonesty is a severe offense and is cause for dismissal from AIID. It is expected that the work a student submits is his or her own. Presenting another person’s ideas, methods, coursework, or test answers with the intention that they are original is theft of a special kind. It defrauds the originator of the work, the institution, its graduates, its students, as well as its future students. The student has full responsibility for the authenticity of all academic work submitted. A student who appears to have violated this policy must submit to a hearing with the reporting instructor, as well as the school’s Director of Education. If it is determined that a violation has occurred, the Director of Education will recommend the appropriate penalty, depending on severity of the incident. The student may be dismissed, suspended, or given a lesser penalty, at the discretion of the Director of Education.
Students must turn off or disable the ring tone of mobile phones for the duration of class. Phone calls, text messages, and/or emails may be attended to during breaks, lunch, or after class. No phone calls will be permitted during class hours, except in cases of emergency.
The American Institute of Interior Design is a smoke-free campus. It is forbidden to smoke or use tobacco products of any kind inside the school building. Smoking is permitted outside the building in designated smoking areas.
