Code of Conduct for National Tax Training School students
As a student of National Tax Training School, a DEAC accredited distance education institution, I recognize that in the pursuit of my educational goals and aspirations I have certain responsibilities toward my fellow distance learners, my institution, and myself. To fulfill these responsibilities, I pledge adherence to this Code of Conduct.
I will adhere to high ethical standards in the pursuit of my education, and to the best of my ability will:
- Conduct myself with professionalism, courtesy and respect for others in all of my dealings with the institution staff and faculty.
- Present my qualifications and background truthfully and accurately for admission to the institution.
- Observe the institutional policies and rules on submitting work and taking examinations.
- Never turn in work that is not my own.
- Never ask for, receive, or give unauthorized help on graded assignments, quizzes, and examinations.
- Never divulge the content of or answers to quizzes or examinations to others.
- Never improperly use, forge, or alter my institution’s documents, transcripts, or other records.
- Never divulge my online username or password.
- Always report any violations of this Code of Conduct to the appropriate institution official, and report any evidence of cheating or improper conduct on the part of any student of the institution when I have direct knowledge of these activities.
Although a grievance against our school is rare, a student should feel free to bring any complaint or concern to our attention so that we may properly address it. The following complaint procedure shall be followed by the student and will be adhered to by the administration:
Concerns or complaints must be brought to our attention within one year from the date of enrollment or within the extension period if the applicable fee has been paid. The concern or complaint should be put into writing and addressed to Aron Klein, Registrar, National Tax training School, PO Box 767, Mahwah, NJ 07430. We will address the issue and make any necessary resolution within 21 business days. A question or concern that the student feels was not satisfactorily resolved by the Registrar, can be addressed in writing to Robert Frankel, Director, National Tax training School, PO Box 767, Mahwah, NJ 07430. The Director will review the matter and make a resolution, if warranted. The Director will inform the student of his determination in writing, within 15 business days.
