Students are expected to attend all exercises of the courses in which they are registered and to be on time. Any absence, regardless of the reason, prevents the student from getting the full benefit of the course. Instructors may include class attendance as a measure of academic performance, and absences may result in consequences for the student. An instructorís syllabus should give particular directions regarding class attendance. Students who miss an exam or a deadline should contact their instructor as soon as possible. Students who are absent from class for a week or more should inform the college deanís office in which they are enrolled.
Students who participate in an officially sanctioned university activity should be given the opportunity to make up class examinations or other graded assignments that are missed as a result of this participation or related travel. It is recognized that sometimes an exam or graded assignment is impossible to make up. Some faculty may assign collaborative projects that depend on other classmates, or oral presentations that incorporate questioning by the entire class, or may use evaluative methods that cannot easily be replicated by the instructor. This policy does not prohibit any member of the faculty from making the determination that certain course work cannot be made up. Faculty who intend to deny the opportunity to make up certain exams or projects must inform the student of this conflict and its consequences (reduced grade or otherwise) in the course syllabus. Other than the above situations, examinations or other assignments missed as a result of university-sanctioned activities may be made up. The manner in which the work will be made up is left to the discretion of each individual faculty member.
To minimize the difficulties for both students and their instructors by absences due to university-sanctioned activities or related travel,
The above represents university standards. Each college may have additional requirements for students enrolling in their courses.
