A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Welcome to Northeast Maritime Institute! It is the sea that gave me my profession, my happiness, my family and my soul. All of my sea going, and maritime-related career choices enabled my success beyond my wildest dreams. My passion to give back to my community; the maritime community, is motivated by the gratitude that I have for the amazing people, both men and women, with whom I have been able to work with. The maritime industry, going to sea specifically, provides for a great career and an unprecedented life experience. The ocean is the last bastion of adventure on earth. The sea, and all who ply it, provides an education, adventure and a way to earn a living that very few industries allow for in a collective experience. To experience this requires a certain type of person who initially must have a passion for working on and around the ocean. Northeast Maritime Institute’s Associate in Applied Science in Nautical Science accepts sixteen students per cohort. You will have to commit yourself to the following tenets for success in this program if you wish to succeed and move to a fruitful career: Honesty, Integrity and Hard Work. You will hear these constantly throughout your experience as they are the three ideals that will guarantee you a successful life as a person and a successful career on the sea. Honesty, Integrity and Hard Work. Remember these three concepts and you will be worthy of an NMI diploma. Upon enrollment you will quickly realize that you are going to be part of a groundbreaking program. Northeast Maritime Institute is the only private maritime college in the United States. My goal as President is for this Institute to be recognized as a college that produces mariners-nothing more, nothing less. Mariners! Sea-going people! Northeast Maritime Institute was founded in 1981 and has delivered world-class maritime education and training to tens of thousands of mariners since then. Our main goal is to deliver our degree program with as much passion as we have with our professional continuing education programs. Most importantly, we want to ensure that we always abide by our own creed to… “Honor the Mariner”. I hope that your experience at Northeast Maritime Institute will be the beginning of the best memories of your life. We will and always shall consider it an honor to serve as the platform from which you began your career passionately and enthusiastically.

May the sea become your passion,

Eric R. Dawicki President Northeast Maritime Institute

ACADEMIC PROGRAM The curriculum of 77 credit hours is predetermined for most students each semester and includes general education and maritime courses. The academic year consists of two academic semesters of approximately 15 weeks each and either a Cooperative Program or a Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping Internship (SCWI) also known as a Sea Term during the summer months. Monday through Friday students are required to be at the muster location by 0750, attend morning meetings, and remain on campus until 1700. The last 30 minutes of each weekday (1630-1700) are dedicated to students’ participation in the Student Responsibility Program. Some class sessions are all day, such as lifeboat training, firefighting, and boat time sessions on the institute’s training vessels and will be integrated into each cohort’s schedule.

ACADEMIC STANDARDS Students will be awarded a single, alphabetical grade certified by the instructor before the reporting deadline which is noted on the academic calendar. Those who meet all the parameters will be placed on the Lemley List for academic distinction.

GRADING STANDARDS NOTE: Although earning a 63.5% in general education courses constitutes a passing grade, the following Nautical Science courses and corresponding scores represent the courses and minimum grades required to pass in accordance with USCG standards.

FINAL EXAMS Every course offered for credit requires a final examination or project as part of the course’s curriculum. No final examination may be given at any time or place other than those published in the examination schedule, except when directed or approved by the CAO. Missing a final examination will result in a zero (0) for the examination unless the student provides proof to his or her instructor that the absence was excusable. After the proof is presented, the instructor and/or the CAO will determine whether the absence is deemed excused.

CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE (CGPA) Student work will be evaluated and graded by the instructor instructing the course. Course work can include, but is not limited to homework assignments, quizzes, exams, labs and/or independent studies that are eligible for grading according to the individual instructor’s grading system. Instructors will outline their grading system in the course syllabus. The final grade for each course will be given according to a one-hundred-point system which will then translate to a four-point system to evaluate the student’s grade point average per semester. Students will be able to view grades as they are available. The student’s cumulative grade point average is computed at the end of each semester based on grade number values as follows:

Letter Grade

Grade Point

Numeric Scale

Letter Grade

Grade Point Numeric Scale

A 4.0 92.5-100 C* 2.0 72.5-77.4 A3.7 90-92.4 C1.7 70-72.4 B+ 3.3 87. 5-89.9 D+ 1 .3 67.5- 69.9 B 3.0 82.05- 87.4 D 1.0 63.5 -67.4 B2.7 80- 82.4 F 0.0 Below 63.5 C+ 2.3 77.5-79.9 * Grades here and above constitute good academic standing. Any student receiving a numeric grade less than 63.5 will receive an “F” letter grade and no point value. These assigned values are multiplied by the number of credit hours of each course to establish the quality points. The total quality points are divided by the total credit hours to determine the CPGA. The following grade are not computed into the CGPA: • • • • •

AU: Audit I: Incomplete P: Pass W: Withdraw WC: Withdraw with credit attempted

If a student withdraws from a class, an official withdrawal form must be filed with the Office of the Registrar to ensure accuracy of student records. If the student fails to officially withdraw, a failing grade could result.

ACADEMIC STANDING A student’s academic standing is determined by the cumulative grade point average (CPGA) required, meeting minimum academic standards based on the student’s credit count of courses successfully completed at Northeast Maritime Institute. Students with a CPGA of 2.0 or above are considered in Good Academic Standing.

22


SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Satisfactory academic progress (SAP) is a term used to describe successful completion of coursework toward a degree or certificate. This policy applies to all students who receive federal and state financial aid, NMI scholarships, grants, departmental awards, tuition pledge programs and some awards from external sources. The following are the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards, which students must meet to maintain satisfactory academic progress for financial aid: 1. Cumulative Grade Point Average (Qualitative Measure) A student must maintain cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or higher. 2. Cumulative Pace of Unit Completion (Quantitative Measure) A student must complete at least 67% of the total number of courses that they attempt (all completed units divided by all attempted units). All courses with grades of A, B, C, D, or F as well as P, W, I, IP, NP, NC, and repeated courses will be counted towards the total attempted courses. All courses with grades of A, B, C, D and P will be counted toward total completed units. 3. Maximum Timeframe Complete a degree or certificate program in no more than 150% of the average published length of the program in credit hours.

GRADE APPEALS PROCESS The grade appeal policy is designed to resolve a student’s specific concerns about a final course grade. If a student feels that a final course grade is inaccurate, the student must make an appointment with the faculty member to discuss the matter informally. The appointment must be requested within the first two weeks of the academic semester following the semester in which the grade was earned. Every effort will be made to resolve the student’s concerns informally. If the student’s concerns are not resolved through the informal appeal, the student may pursue a formal appeal process by meeting with the Chief Academic Officer. The burden of proof is on the student to show that the grade is inaccurate. The formal appeal must be initiated within two weeks after the conclusion of the informal process. The formal process commences when the student submits, in writing, a description of the basis for the grievance, including any corroborating materials, to the CAO. The CAO will promptly notify the instructor of the formal appeal. Within two weeks of said notification, the instructor must address the concerns of the student in writing and submit the response to the CAO. The CAO will then make an assessment as to the validity of the student’s grievance and provide a written copy of any recommendations to both the instructor and student. Regardless of the nature of the recommendation of the CAO, it remains the sole prerogative of the instructor to change the grade. Exceptions to the policy may be permitted if the CAO determines that clear and compelling extenuating circumstances exist.

ACADEMIC REVIEW A student is placed on Academic Review when his/her CGPA falls below a 2.0 but remains above the probationary level. Students placed on Academic Review will be notified by the Chief Academic Officer and be required to meet with an academic advisor prior to enrolling for the next semester.

23


ACADEMIC PROBATION A student is placed on Academic Probation if his or her CGPA falls below the noted Probation CGPA noted below. This probationary status may immediately affect his/her participation in academic activities as well as his/her financial aid package. Students have two semesters of attendance to raise their CGPA to an appropriate level in order to be removed from Academic Probation. Students on Academic Probation will be notified in writing by the Registrar's Office to meet with the Dean of Students, review committee, and/or appropriate faculty members to create a plan which would likely include tutoring, strategic course selection, and other changes in study habits.

ACADEMIC DISMISSAL & READMISSION A student who does not raise his or her CGPA above probation after two semesters of attendance will be dismissed for one calendar year. Students will be notified in writing by the Office of the Registrar and may consider the Academic Appeals Procedure. After one year of inactive status, a student may return with an incoming cohort and will be placed on probation. Student may be required to complete additional time sensitive program requirements due to the dismissal. After two years of inactive status, the student may choose to take advantage of the New Beginning Option.

ACADEMIC APPEALS PROCESS NMI has established the following system for an appeal of an academic dismissal. • • • • • • •

The Registrar will notify the student of dismissal by mail or email and explain the right to appeal and the procedures to follow. A student who wishes to appeal may write to the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) explaining his/her reason for appeal. The student shall meet with the CAO and one instructor to discuss the reasons for dismissal and reason for appeal The meeting shall conclude with the student being informed with the final decision of the appeal. The Registrar shall serve as resource personnel in this matter. The CAO shall arrange for student support services if student is reinstated. If student is not satisfied with the CAO’s decision, he/she shall appeal to the Office of the President If a student returns after academic dismissal, they will be enrolled in the next cohort and will be required to repeat the semester they were attending, due to the attendance policy.

ATTENDANCE POLICIES All students are expected to attend every scheduled class session. Attendance requirements and the impact of attendance on grading which are specified in the syllabus for each course are determined by the USCG and faculty members. Faculty are required to take attendance for all courses. The Student Handbook includes the attendance policy for students enrolled in the College of Maritime Science program. Because of the U.S. Coast Guard approval in lieu of sea time, maritime courses have strict unexcused absence policies. The Handbook addresses course make-ups, course withdrawals, final grades, make-up exams and late assignments. 24


Attendance policies are also reiterated within each course. If a student misses a class with licensing requirements structured into the curriculum, the student must make arrangements with the instructor to make up the content form the missed class.

MORNING MEETING All students are required to attend every scheduled morning meeting.

CLASS ATTENDANCE All students are expected to attend every scheduled class session. Attendance requirements and the impact of attendance on grading are specified in the syllabus for each course and are determined by the U.S. Coast Guard and faculty members. Faculty are required to take attendance for all courses. Instructors must report unexcused absences daily.

TARDINESS If a student is going to be tardy to Morning Meeting, i.e. arrive after 7:45 AM, he or she must call or text the front office at 508-287-1073, and he or she must report to the Director of Nautical Science at the close of Morning Meeting. If a student arrives after 8:00 AM, it will be considered an unexcused absence, and the Director of Nautical Science shall inform that student of his/her consequence. If a student is going to be late for class, he or she must notify his/her instructor as soon as possible. In either case, students who arrive between 1 and 14 minutes after the start of class are marked tardy. Three tardies are equivalent to one unexcused absence, and arriving to class later than 15 minutes will be recorded as an unexcused absence.

ABSENCES FROM CLASS OR EXAMINATIONS Should a student need to be absent from a class, he or she must contact the instructor via email with as much advanced notice as possible prior to the day or class in which he or she will be absent. If a student speaks to an instructor directly about an absence, the student must follow up the conversation with an email to the instructor. The instructor will reply indicating whether the absence will be classified as excused or unexcused in order for the conversation to be deemed an official record of the communication. If a student is sick or has an emergency and must miss class, he or she must call the front office. Then, as soon as possible, he or she must email the front office and the appropriate instructors detailing the incident, so the instructors can identify whether the absence merits an unexcused classification. If a student is absent on a day (or days) immediately following a holiday or an official school break, upon returning to campus, he or she must provide a doctor’s note indicating the reason for the absence. Instructors will respond indicating whether the absence was deemed excused or unexcused. If a student exceeds three (3) excused absences in a semester, any additional absences will be deemed unexcused unless a doctor’s note is received by the CAO upon the student’s return to school. NOTE: It is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor to arrange a time to make up any missed classwork or quizzes and to discover and collect any missed material. Unexcused Absences First Offense: • Assigned to a Wednesday Night Session for each class needing time recovery. Second Offense: • Assigned to a Benevolence Detail Third Offense: • Grounds for Dismissal and a meeting with the Academic Review Board An unexcused absence on the day of an examination or quiz will result in a grade of zero. However, a faculty member may excuse a student from an examination, project, assignment, or quiz if certain extenuating circumstances exist. At NMI, the student is responsible for effectively managing health issues, especially as they relate to classes, i.e., determining whether to attend class, to complete assignments, to be present for quizzes, examinations, etc. Under no circumstances is a health care provider able to excuse a student for medical reasons. Only the faculty member has the authority to excuse or not to excuse 25


the student from class or class assignments. Faculty members will publish clearly defined absentee and make up assignment policies in their course syllabi which shall be distributed the first week of class, so students know their responsibilities regarding class attendance and what to do following an absence. Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to attendance/absence policies in each of their classes. The student must contact a faculty member as soon as possible concerning an absence and maintain an open line of communication with the faculty member concerning the student’s absence. • If an outside health care provider determines that the student needs immediate medical treatment or that he or she must follow specific protocol to alleviate symptoms and/or contagion, then the student must inform the appropriate faculty member/s. In addition, a student must contact the appropriate faculty members if he or she must be absent from class for more than three days. On occasion, the Office of the Chief Academic Officer will advise professors that a student has notified the College that he or she will be absent for a specific period of time. When able to return to class or campus, the student will work with the applicable faculty and/or follow the procedures outlined in the faculty member’s syllabus for making up missed work. Students are allowed to miss three (3) excused 90-minute class sessions, provided they follow all make up procedures. If extenuating circumstances exist, the Academic Review Board will convene to assess unique situations.

ABSENCE DUE TO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS Any NMI student who cannot attend class, take an exam, study or fulfill work requirements on a particular day due to his/her religious beliefs shall be excused from such obligations. The student must be provided with an opportunity to make up such exam(s), study or work requirements provided; however, such make-up exam(s) or work does not create an unreasonable burden upon the Institution. The student shall not be charged for such make-up opportunities, nor may he/she be subjected to adverse or prejudicial effects for availing him/herself of the provisions of Massachusetts State Law.

MAKE UP OF MISSED CLASSES It is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor to arrange a time to make up any missed classwork or quizzes and to discover and collect any missed material.

COURSE WITHDRAWAL A student may officially withdraw from a course by obtaining a “Change of Schedule” form from the Office of the Registrar and securing the signatures of his/her advisor and the course instructor. The student is responsible for submitting the completed form to the Office of the Registrar. Refer to the Academic calendar for specific dates to submit forms for withdrawal without a record and withdrawal with a grade of “W”. The date of a withdrawal will also affect refunds and possibly the student’s graduation date, scholarships and class year designation. A student may not withdraw from the same course more than once. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure all deadlines are met. An instructor and the CAO may initiate the withdrawal of a student from a course if the student is not meeting attendance requirements.

LEAVE OF ABSENCE A student may apply for a Leave of Absence for a period of up to one year. During this one-year period, undergraduate students may be readmitted to the College through the Registrar’s Office without having to reapply through the Office of Undergraduate Admission. To take a leave of absence students must contact the Registrar’s Office to file the appropriate request. Students living in campus housing must vacate with 24 hours of submitting a leave or withdrawal request.

MEDICAL WITHDRAWAL A student may apply for a Medical Withdrawal through the Office of the Registrar as needed, but no later than 90 days after the end of the semester in which the medical issue occurred. Medical withdrawals apply only to the student with a documented medical issue. A student who must care for a relative must follow the standard withdrawal procedure through the Registrar. A medical withdrawal requires that the student submit original documentation signed by a medical or clinical professional on letterhead that states the student was unable to complete the semester. The documentation is kept in a confidential file. A memo will be sent to the Registrar, Financial Aid including Veteran’s Affairs (if applicable), and to the Bursar’s Office to notify them of the student’s withdrawal status. The student must satisfy any outstanding obligations with these departments. Medical Withdrawal Forms are available in the Office of the Registrar.

MILITARY LEAVE Students who are unable to complete a semester because they are called to active United States military duty shall, upon verification, be granted the option of a refund or credit of tuition and campus fees. With respect to any health insurance fee, the refund policy is subject to the concurrence of the institution’s insurance carrier. Any students who have received any form of financial aid including a full or partial scholarship or student loan or who expect to receive such, should contact the financial aid office at their respective institution to make appropriate arrangements. Students shall receive non-punitive withdrawals in all courses from which they are required to withdraw. Student residing in residence halls shall receive refunds on a pro-rata basis for the remainder of the semester. Verification shall be provided by furnishing the Registrar with a copy of the Order to Active Duty within one week (7 days) of receipt of the Order. If the Order is not in writing, the student may sign an affidavit attesting to such order, which includes and address or telephone number where the institution can verify the Order and furnish the affidavit to the Registrar within one week (7days) of receipt of Order. The institution’s President may waive or suspend any institutional policy or regulation that negatively impacts a student in their withdrawal or subsequent re-admission to the institution due to a call to active duty. The institution, upon request of a student, should assist the student in filling mitigating circumstances forms with external state or federal agencies (for example, Veterans Affairs) in an attempt to prevent overpayment charges being made against the student. Any student required to withdraw due to being called to active duty shall be given priority enrollment in the program of his/her choice upon return to the institution for the two semesters immediately following his/her discharge from active duty. Additional information may be found at www.mass.edu

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE A student may withdraw from the college for non-medical reasons. A completed Withdrawal Form, with required signatures, must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office by the last class day of the semester. No application for withdrawal will be accepted or processed after final exams have begun for the academic term. The student must satisfy any outstanding obligations with the Bursar’s Office. If the withdrawal is approved, a letter grade of “W” will be recorded for all courses taken during said semester. Withdrawal Forms are available in the Office of the Registrar.

STUDENT SERVICES “Success increases dramatically when students are taught holistically.” This is the guiding principle for the development of all Student Affairs programs and Support Services at NMI. Born from constant and open communication among the faculty, student services officers, and the Chief Academic Officer regarding student status, systems to support academic success, personal growth, and professional awareness are established and adjusted as needed. Mandatory Study Hall (MSH) sessions with incentives • All students are assigned to mandatory study halls, with the required number of which diminish with each successive semester. • Students are assessed immediately following mid-terms and can earn the right to be released from some or all MSH. • Students who have below 80% at the mid-year mark in some or all classes meet with Student Services Officers and will either maintain their mandatory study schedule or be assigned new study hall schedules which will include increased number of study sessions, some with more focused, tutor directed guidance. • Small group or individual tutoring is offered by instructors, academic support officers, or peers. Prioritized Attendance • 100% attendance in all classes is expected and closely monitored. • Wednesday Night Sessions (WNS) provide a small group setting for all unexcused class absences to makeup, review, or reinforce classroom assignments. • Excused absences are made-up at the direction of the instructors. Class Size • Classes are capped at sixteen students per class to allow instructors to work closely with each student • Support Services Officers hold small group meetings to promote development of long-term and short-term goals, to offer guidance to meet those goals, and to encourage students to stay in the course or identify when modification of course or goal is necessary. The Joshua Slocum Library • The Joshua Slocum Library is located at Founders Hall. Study areas and computers with internet access are available for students to research, study, and collaborate and are in each building on the campus. • A librarian is available to assist students and to offer guidance on research projects. SAILS Network access • Students enrolled at NMI have access to the Millicent Library, a historical public library of Fairhaven, at 45 Center Street, a short distance from the main buildings. As NMI students, they are entitled to a membership card, allowing them to use the library’s shared automation Library Network called SAILS, providing access to 65 other libraries within the SAILS Network. Study Center • NMI provides a unique study center which houses the Nautical Science instructors’ offices and student services. By grouping these essential academic resources under one roof, students have easy access to help during the week. 28


STUDENT ADVISING Student advising includes members of the Registrar’s Office, Nautical Science faculty and the Chief Academic Officer. •

A skills class is offered once a week for first semester students. This class covers topics such as notetaking, telephone etiquette, budgeting, idea presentation; all of which are designed to improve academic, social, and professional performance.

Course selection advising is offered to students who have failed a course and a retake is necessary, preventing them from maintaining the pre-set curriculum. The Chief Academic Officer and/or Student Support Services office will discuss the best options for semester scheduling based upon course availability and manageable level of rigor to ensure the student’s success.

Daily weekday morning meetings serve to foster and reinforce a sense of belonging and community. There is dedicated and regular communication among faculty, CAO, and Student Support Services to discuss and address the needs and successes of students. The purpose is to model and improve communication, maintain student focus, take attendance, improve morale, and interpret the daily weather.

Student advising focuses on physical and emotional health and can help find counselors, doctors, urgent care centers, health clinics and financial assistance.

A formal student internship committee and process provides students with an introduction to work opportunities, assistance with resumes and interview preparation and workplace expectations. A review of current and expected sea-time credit is included to advise students on the best internship options for post-graduation licensing and career-planning.

CAREER COUNSELING AND PLACEMENT

Students benefit daily from Nautical Science faculty who are all licensed mariners with extensive and varied sailing experience. Students are assisted with all licensing paperwork, sea documentation, physical examination forms, Merchant Mariner’s Credential from our Registrar and qualified Student Services Officers. • Students can ask our Registrar to communicate with USCG National Maritime Center on their behalf when issues arise. • The Registrar maintains a copy of the student’s license. • NMI offers verification of a student’s enrollment in NMI’s random drug testing program. • Transportation to registration and licensing appointments is provided to students in need. • Internships are required and arranged by NMI Internships and provide an opportunity for experiential learning and the development of required competencies. • Students engage in the practical application of knowledge gained in their NMI classrooms. • The Summer Semester at Sea is designed to provide required sea time to meet regulatory requirements of the United States Coast Guard and/or the Commonwealth of Dominica Maritime Administration. • Internship placement represents a collaborative effort with input from student, faculty, administration, and the CAO. Students are encouraged to research the different parts of the industry by reviewing shipping companies, their services, fleets and operating areas to appreciate the range of opportunities prior to their summer internship assignment. Assessing companies is yet another opportunity for growth as it serves as an introduction to the process of applying for a full-time job after graduation. • Students are assigned each summer to vessels that comply with the required tonnage for their prospective licenses and certificates of competence. Company agreements are facilitated by NMI’s Student Services and Support Office, ensuring that each company directs each student for his/her watchkeeping duties and job-skill training in accordance with each respective Summer Semester at Sea. Most often, NMI students 29


are hired as deckhands, not as cadets, so they are receiving pay and are treated as members of the crew, facilitating a more realistic introduction to both social and professional expectations as a crew member. NMI facilitates travel to internship when necessary.

Professional resume writing seminars • Students practice and receive feedback on a variety of cover letter styles. • Students may experience mock interview sessions with standard industry interview questions discussed • Nautical Science Director provides brainstorming prompts to prepare students for Summer at Sea and to heighten understanding of both the process and industry hiring methods. This exercise also models the internal questioning required to prepare for any new event in life. • Professional imaging is discussed and encouraged.

OUR FLEET SAILING VESSEL FRITHA Launched in 1986 in New Zealand and named for the heroine in Paul Gallico’s book, The Snow Goose, the brigantine Fritha was built by traditional methods to unparalleled standards of excellence in materials and craftsmanship. The Fritha is made of New Zealand kauri wood, is 74’ LOA with a 15’ breadth and is traditionally rigged as a brigantine. Students learn how to both sail Fritha and manage her in their Sail and Advanced Sail Classes, respectively. Fritha’s home waters of Southern New England offer some of the most beautiful scenery and best sailing in the world. Interesting ports or anchorages such as Buzzard’s Bay, the Elizabeth Islands, Vineyard Sound, Nantucket Sound and more are only a few hours’ sail from Fritha’s home port of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Of course, we can arrange for Fritha to meet you in places outside of her home waters as well. Fritha then moves south to her adopted winter home of Beaufort, NC where she has extensive maintenance and repair conducted to ensure that she is ready as Northeast Maritime Institute’s vessel ambassador visiting ports and introducing NMI and the College of Maritime Science to people throughout the east coast.

MOTOR VESSEL NAVIGATOR Navigator is a Breaux Bay Craft hull number 1554, a 65x18 aluminum passenger vessel with a 3’11” draft serves as viable training platform for NMI College of Maritime Science students.

STUDENT LIFE The Associate in Applied Science in Nautical Science (AASNS) degree program is delivered as a cohort style of education. Cohorts are developed as a group of students that are treated as a single unit or ship’s crew – all responsible for the success of one another and their operational mission. The AASNS degree program was created to foster the philosophy that an intimate educational experience nurtures not only the individual, but also the cohort. Students are transformed into a cohesive group, while developing individual skills to be able to safely and efficiently manage, maintain adapt and operate within the current and future needs of the maritime industry. There is also a strong sense of community within the student body, faculty and staff. Students are responsible for the upkeep of facilities, shoveling sidewalks, engaging in community service and truly becoming part of the fabric of the local community. The Institute strives to ensure housing feels warm and welcoming as well as providing regular events to bring students, staff and faculty together in relaxing environments. Student life programming includes community lunches, pool tournaments, off-campus activities such as bowling, soccer and basketball leagues and rock climbing. Students have access to the basketball court and workout facility in Founder’s Hall as well as the Student Recreation Area in Brigantine Hall.

STANDARDS AND PRINCIPLES OF CONDUCT AND BEHAVIOR (STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT) The NMI community expects all its members to promote the values of honesty, integrity, hard work, compassion, responsibility, and respect for learning. Behaviors or actions which damage morale, disrupt the learning process, or challenge the school’s motto, “Honor the Mariner,” are not acceptable. Any behavior that negatively impacts any other student’s experience in the classroom, the facilities, or on the water is unacceptable. At no time shall a student’s behavior, language, or actions harm, diminish, or infringe on another student’s experience. The purpose of consequences for violations of NMI’s Code of Conduct is to educate the individual who violates these standards and to reinforce expectations for the entire NMI community. Membership in NMI’s community is voluntary and predicated upon the agreement to abide by our shared standards and values. NMI is in the heart of the town of Fairhaven, and its students are expected to represent the school in a way that honors the traditions of the town and community. All students are required to abide by the standards of ethical behavior and principles of conduct as set forth by NMI. Personal conduct on and off campus is governed by these policies and principles. Our Code of Conduct states that students will not lie, cheat, or steal. Academic honesty is always expected. Cheating includes plagiarism, unauthorized use of notes, submitting another’s work as one’s own, or copying work from another student without permission of the instructor.

VIOLATION AND DISMISSAL All students are expected to respect the rights of others and are held responsible for conforming to the laws of the national, state and local governments and for conducting themselves in a manner consistent with the best interest of the Institution and the student body. NMI reserves the right to dismiss any student for any reason including but not limited to: • • • • • • •

Failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress Failure to pay school fees or tuition in a timely manner Failure to maintain necessary attendance requirements Failure to follow published student conduct requirements Disruptive behavior Posing a danger to the health or welfare of students, faculty or staff Failure to comply with any published institutional policies or regulations 33


• • • •

Use of profanity Threatening behavior of any type Violation of the school’s drug and alcohol policy Theft of property

PERSONAL AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Integrity is valued in all aspects of NMI school life. The following behaviors represent serious violations of personal and/or academic integrity: lying, forging a signature, inaccurately reporting one’s location, or claiming to have submitted an assignment without doing so. When a student places his or her name on an assignment (e.g., homework, lab report, essay, project, test, quiz, or examination), it is assurance that the work is the result of the student’s own thoughts and labors, unless the student specifically acknowledges the use of outside sources or assistance. When a teacher requires or permits collaboration on an assignment, the fact and nature of the collaboration must be clearly indicated by the student.

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY Academic dishonesty normally falls into one of two categories, cheating or plagiarism. Cheating is giving or receiving help in any form on a test, exam, or assignment for which the teacher has not specifically permitted collaboration. Plagiarism is presenting the work, words, or ideas of another as one’s own. Cheating is not limited to copying homework or test answers. If students in more than one section of a course are given the same quiz or test, passing information about test questions or items is also cheating. Collaboration on homework to be handed in for credit without the explicit consent of the instructor will be considered cheating. Plagiarism is not limited to copying whole entries from an encyclopedia, other published sources, or the internet. Quoting another person’s words, paraphrasing their ideas, or using their ideas without footnoting and/or using quotation marks or without specific written acknowledgment are all forms of plagiarism. In the absence of proper citation, a student declares that everything in a piece is his or her own. While intentional plagiarism is the more serious of the two, unintentional plagiarism is also unacceptable. It is the student’s responsibility to avoid any unattributed use of another writer’s language or ideas. When using computers, students may not assist others with academic assignments for credit unless such collaboration is permitted. Dishonest assistance includes typing another student’s work and creating graphics. Providing technical assistance, such as showing how to operate the scanner, is permissible as long as the content and expression of information is not abridged. Information, including images downloaded from databases or websites, etc., must be correctly and completely documented with footnote and bibliographic citations. Failure to do so is plagiarism. The use of online or electronic translation services similarly will be considered plagiarism.

Electronic Submission of Work If a student submits an assignment electronically, it is his or her responsibility to ensure that the teacher receives the assignment on time and in a format that the teacher can access. The best way to avoid confusion and a late penalty is to follow teacher instructions carefully and/or hand in a hard copy of the assignment in class on the day that it is due. Furthermore, computer-related failures are the responsibility of the student. Computer crashes and printer malfunctions can happen. Students must make the effort to back up their work and to print out assignments in advance, so they can adapt to changing circumstances. Failure of computer equipment does not absolve a student of the responsibility to submit work on time. Academic honesty is so fundamental that violations of this standard will result in serious consequences. Consequences for cheating on plagiarizing classwork and/or homework are as follows: First Offense: • Student shall earn a grade of zero on the connected assignment. Second Offense: • Student shall earn a grade of zero on the connected assignment and be assigned a Saturday Benevolence Detail. Third Offense: 34


Student’s actions shall be reviewed by the Student Conduct Board. Grounds for expulsion.

Consequences for cheating on a quiz, examination, research project or paper are as follows*: First Offense: • Student earns a zero on the quiz, examination, research project or paper, meets with Student Conduct Board, and could face a one semester expulsion.** •

Second Offense: Grounds for expulsion * USCG level exams will require a six-month waiting period and will require restarting the full exam series ** Cheating on multiple exams in one exam period (i.e. mid-terms, finals) will be considered as multiple offenses and be grounds for immediate expulsion.

HAZING Hazing is strictly prohibited. Hazing is any conduct or method of initiation into any student organization, whether on or off campus, which willfully or recklessly endangers the physical or mental health of any student or other person or behavior that is intended, or should reasonably be expected, to have the effect of humiliating, intimidating, or demeaning the student. Hazing also includes soliciting, directing, aiding, or otherwise participating actively or passively in such acts.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES PROGRAM/MAINTENANCE Northeast Maritime Institute (NMI) takes pride in our school, our surroundings, and our community. As a result, we require students to maintain their school as they would maintain a ship, for this is an integral aspect to any maritime career. Students are required to take part in NMI’s Student Responsibilities Program and will be placed in small teams with their colleagues at the beginning of each semester. Each team of students will monitor, clean, and maintain their assigned facilities at NMI, and completing these tasks will improve individual and group success as well as foster leadership, communication, and responsibility. Second year students will be assigned as PICs for each building and have a responsibility to monitor attendance and participation accurately and truthfully which should be submitted to the supervising faculty member each Friday. Each student will report to his or her assigned building at 1630 each weekday and check in with the PIC at the building. Violations of these duties will fall under the unexcused absence policies in this handbook. If a student is unable to complete his or her work, he or she must meet with the PIC and the Director of the Nautical Science Department to discuss the circumstances and find a solution. The Director of Nautical Science is authorized to approve reasonable student requests for extension or waiver. In the event a student fails to fulfill his or her duties under the Student Responsibilities Program, he or she will be notified in writing by the Registrar’s office with a copy sent to the CAO and the DOS. The student will have five (5) days to make up his or her duties. If he or she fails to make up his or her duties in the allotted time, the Registrar’s office will again notify the student and the DOS will reach out to the student in writing to set up a meeting, and the violation of this policy will be treated as a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. Sanctions for a violation of the Student Responsibilities Program may include an increase of up to two times the necessary community service hours to meet the graduation requirement. Students may appeal their sanctions to the Student Conduct Board.

35


Consequences for Unexcused Absence from Maintenance: First Offense: • Make up missed cleaning duties • Assigned additional duties the following day Second Offense: • Assigned to the next WNS • Must make up missed cleaning time Third Offense: • Assigned to Benevolence Detail • Must make up missed cleaning time Fourth Offense: • Grounds for expulsion. NOTE: A student’s participation in the maintenance portion of the Student Responsibilities Program directly affects his or her Summer Sea Term placement.

DRESS CODE Our students represent the College in the community; therefore, clean, neat clothing and tidy appearance are the general expectations of all students at NMI. Clothing: Students shall wear school polos or school button down oxford shirts which must be tucked in and paired with khakis and a black or brown belt. In cooler weather, students may wear a navy, gray, brown, or black sweatshirt or sweater with their school shirts. On occasion, students shall be required to wear more formal attire which would include a combination of the following: jacket/blazer, tie, shirt, skirt, pants, or dress. Garments must not have designs that promote alcohol, drugs, or gangs, nor should any clothing designs denigrate others. Shoes: A student must wear closed toe shoes, and if they have laces, they must be tied. Hair: All students at NMI must always keep their hair clean and professional in appearance. To achieve this goal, each student’s hair must be a natural color and cannot fall over the ear or below the top of the collar. For safety reasons, long hair shall be pulled back, preferably into a bun or safely braided. Lab time and boat time may require hair to be pulled into a bun as a safety precaution. Facial hair: Students must be clean shaven until the completion of the Fire Academy course. After successfully completing the Fire Academy course, the standard for facial hair is finely groomed to be no longer than an inch at the base. NOTE: Some companies may require students to remain clean shave for the duration of an internship, and some companies will require all tattoos to be fully covered by required garments. Weight: All students must maintain the USCG standards regarding weight. Piercings: Ear piercings must be studs and any other piercings must not be visible. Headgear: Hats or covers cannot be worn indoors. Headphones cannot be worn as a fashion accessory. NOTE: Clothing, jewelry, piercings, and hairstyles which are distracting to college staff, faculty, or administration create an unprofessional image and shall not be tolerated on campus or at school related activities.

36


Students may be dismissed from any classroom or experiential activity for violation of the dress code. Any student who violates any part of the student dress code will be penalized with an unexcused absence from any class in which they have breached the dress code. The student is expected to correct the dress code violation immediately in between classes to avoid being penalized with additional unexcused absences for other classes. If a student arrives at Morning Meeting inappropriately dressed for the day, he or she will be instructed to correct the issue. If a student arrives at Morning Meeting in violation of the dress code a second time, then the student will be required to attend a Wednesday Night Session.

HEALTH SERVICES Northeast Maritime Institute is located just a few miles from the Southcoast Urgent Care Center and St. Luke’s Hospital, which provide urgent and emergency care. The Institute can also provide referrals and assist with appointments for local mental health providers. Information is available at the Office of the Registrar for local health care providers including insurance providers for students seeking coverage.

STUDENT CHEMICAL TESTING POLICY It is the policy of NMI to establish and maintain an environment free from the adverse effects of alcohol and substance abuse. The College will annually notify and inform all students of its drug and alcohol program. NMI’s Code of Conduct requires all students to refrain from using drugs and abusing alcohol and/or prescription drugs. To combat the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other chemical substances, all students must abide by this policy. The College will conduct drug and alcohol testing in compliance with applicable State and Federal laws. The College will conduct mandatory drug testing as required under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Transportation for cadets and crewmembers: “Students with a confirmed positive tests results shall be subject to automatic dismissal from their academic program and may also be required to participate in a chemical user evaluation or rehabilitation program at his or her expense. If a student contests the positive test result and has requested a split sample testing referred to in paragraph (h) above, the student may remain in his or her academic program, subject to removal of safety sensitive duties, until the results of the split sample testing has been received.” The names of five students will be drawn at random at least once per month, and NMI is required to submit the positive results to the USCG. More information pertaining to this policy is in the NMI Student Handbook.

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS The misuse of prescription drugs is a serious problem on college campuses. For this reason, it is a violation of conduct rules for a student to be in possession of another person’s prescription medication or for a student to give or share his prescription medications with others. Sanctions will be assessed based on the behavior in question and can include a fine, disciplinary probation, drug education, and/or referral for evaluation, counseling, or mentoring. More information pertaining to this policy is in the NMI Student Handbook.

ALCOHOL POLICY Consumption of alcoholic beverages on the grounds of the campus or campus-related facilities is prohibited. Individuals who appear intoxicated, i.e., needing assistance to walk, speaking incoherently, emitting a strong odor of alcohol, or vomiting, will not be admitted to campus events. Moreover, individuals demonstrating such behavior while attending any registered social function will be promptly removed. More information pertaining to this policy is in the NMI Student Handbook.

37
