Class Attendance Policy
In cases of legitimate absence from the class, the student has the opportunity and responsibility to make up all class work missed. If a class absence is necessary because of an activity by another class or university organization, the sponsor of the activity will give the Provost a list of participants in advance, and the students involved will obtain from the Provost an excuse to present to the instructor. In case of absence for any other reason, the student will present his reason directly to the instructor.
When the number of absences for any reason exceeds four times the number of scheduled class meetings per week (25% of class meetings during Summer term), the student is involuntarily withdrawn from the course with a grade of “WF.”
Be advised that certain departments and individual professors enforce policies which differ from the above policy. See the departmental section of this catalog for the attendance policy for each department and the syllabus for each course for that course’s specific attendance requirements which may be different from those stated here.
