Rules and Policies
The Tonga Institute of Higher Education strives to maintain a professional
atmosphere of respect for both teachers and students. Professional
behavior inside and outside of the classroom is expected for the purpose
of maintaining this degree of excellence.
Restricted Behavior and Penalties
TIHE follows a strict policy that forbids cheating under all
circumstances. If a student is found to be cheating, the teacher has the
discretion to deal with it at the classroom level or refer the case to the
Student Services Committee who will examine the case and deliver the
verdict as well as punitive repercussions based on the severity involved.
Food, Drinks, and Litter
Students are not allowed to eat, drink or smoke in the computer labs. If a
student is found doing so, he/she will lose their computer privileges for
one week. The consumption of alcohol on campus is not allowed and
offenders will be referred to the Student Services Committee for
appropriate action. Littering on the campus is discouraged and all
students will be responsible for keeping the campus tidy and clean.
Guests are not permitted to use the facilities at TIHE under any
circumstances. If an individual does not have their TIHE identification
on their person, they will be asked to leave the grounds.
A student must at all times ensure that the property of the Government of
Tonga is properly maintained. A student must also not indulge in any act,
which may result in damage to the Government of Tonga property.
If a student is found attempting to steal equipment from the labs he/she
will be dismissed from school and banned from returning or re-applying.
There are no mitigating circumstances in this case.
Conduct unbecoming, inside or outside the classroom, will jeopardize the
students eligibility to continue studying. Students must ensure that the
safety of individuals are not jeopardized and the orderly conduct of
courses of instructions are not in any way interfered with.
