Academic dishonesty in any form will not be tolerated.  Students are expected to do their own work.  Plagiarism, using the words of others without express permission or proper citation, will not be tolerated.  Any cheating (giving or receiving) or other dishonest activity will, at a minimum, result in a zero on that test or assignment and may be referred, at the discretion of the instructor, to the Department Chair and/or Vice President of Instruction for further action.  If you are uncertain as to what constitutes academic dishonesty, please consult the Academic Integrity Policy for further details.


Arkansas Northeastern College recognizes that AI tools represent both great disruption and great opportunity.  ANC wishes to embrace the use of these tools to enhance outcomes and student learning.  However, the institution also realizes that AI can be used to plagiarize, cheat, or otherwise defeat the purpose of obtaining a collegiate education.


ANC supports the use of AI in circumstances where it facilitates student learning, and not in circumstances where it replaces student learning.  Given the myriad uses of such tools and the great variety of program of study, this must be determined on a case-by-case basis.  Therefore, ANC asserts that it is the responsibility of all ANC instructors to provide clearn guidelines regarding the use of AI tools in their classes, and it is the responsibility of all students to know and abide by these guidelines.


A grade of "I" (incomplete) is assigned on the final grade roster when a student fails to meet all course requirements for reasons beyond his/her control, ie., illness of the student, or serious illness or death in the family.  Procrastination or pressures of work in other courses are not satisfactory reasons for an "I" grade.  The "I" grade will be calculated into the grade point average with the appropriate hours attempted and no quality points earned.  Students who do not complete the requirements for removal of the "I" grade by midterm of the following fall or spring semester will be assigned a grade of "F."  Students who complete the requirements will have the instructor assigned grade posted to the transcript and the grade point average will be adjusted accordingly.


ANC student email is the official means of communication with students on all campuses.  Important college-related information will be sent to individual ANC student email accounts.  Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with college communications.  Types of communication include, but are not limited to: financial aid information, bills, payment deadlines and inclement weather closings.  Your email address will be your (first initial)(last name)(last 4 digits of ANC ID number)  The default password will be your full ANC ID number with no spaces or hyphens.


If you already created a new password, and forgot that password, email the ANC Helpdesk at
