CLASS ATTENDANCE POLICY
It is the responsibility of the student to attend all scheduled
meetings in the courses in which he/she is enrolled. If a student
is absent more than twice the number of required class or laboratory
sessions per week during regular semesters or more than 15 percent
of required sessions during accelerated semesters, a grade of
F or W will normally be assigned, unless absences have been excused
for cause by the instructor.
Individual instructors may choose alternative requirements for
attendance. It is the responsibility of the instructor to inform
students, at the beginning of each course, of all attendance policies.
The instructor, at his/her discretion, may utilize a warning of
excessive absences or compulsory attendance. Attendance policies
will be outlined on the class syllabus.
If a student violates the stated attendance policy, the instructor
will notify the Office of the Registrar to drop the student from
the class with the appropriate grade. It is the responsibility
of a student to make up work missed because of absence from announced
tests and laboratory sessions. However, announced tests and laboratory
sessions may be made up only at the discretion of the instructor.
