Class Attendance

Students are required to attend all class meetings of courses for which they are registered. It is the student's responsibility to contact an instructor - preferably in advance - of a necessary absence. A student absent from class for any reason assumes the responsibility for making up work which has been missed.

The instructor determines the attendance policy for his or her class. An instructor may fail a student if the instructor determines that unwarranted absences have earned the student a grade of “F”, based on grading standards and attendance requirements defined in the course syllabus. Excessive absences in any class, even excused absences, may mean that a student cannot fulfill minimal course requirements. In such cases, an instructor should notify the student of this condition and encourage the student to withdraw from the course during the regular withdrawal period.
