CCOE expects members of the University community, including PST registrants, to be honest, and professional in all of their dealings with the institution. CCOE adheres to the academic integrity policies for undergraduate students if the PST course is not cross-listed with either an undergraduate or graduate-level course. If the PST course is cross-listed, then the undergraduate or graduate level academic integrity policies apply. For information on tuition and fees, see the section on Financial Information.

A regular status faculty member or teacher may enroll and apply for tuition waiver following the effective date of employment. Part-time employees and their family members are eligible to apply for a tuition waiver for one course per semester only. Employees and their eligible family members who have tuition waived are not eligible for University-sponsored financial aid programs designed to supplement tuition and lab fees.
