Part 6. Student Affairs

Section IX. Student Conduct

F. Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend all meetings or classes in which they are registered. Each instructor may, consistent with departmental policy, establish such specific regulations governing attendance as may seem suited to a particular course. No one is authorized to excuse a student from class meeting except the instructor in charge of the class.

Students who must be absent from class for serious illness, severe weather, religious holidays or approved university activities (e.g., extracurricular athletics, performance groups, student government) should consult with their instructors. Faculty may make reasonable exceptions to their attendance policies as appropriate for the specific class. The student is responsible for any course work missed. Some programs may have requirements that effectively limit absences. Students retain the right to the Scholastic Appeals process (see Student Handbook) if they believe they have been unfairly penalized for absence from class.
