Course Attendance Policy

The university expects all students to attend class.

Individual faculty members may define attendance standards appropriate to each course and the consequences of not meeting those standards, within the following guidelines:

  • Each policy must be distributed in writing during the first week of the course. Normally, it is expected that the information dealing with class attendance standards will be distributed with the course syllabus.
  • Each policy must define some limited level of allowable absence.
  • Each policy must recognize student’s need to miss class because of illness, personal emergency, university-sponsored activities, bereavement or active military duty.
  • Each policy must not penalize students who add the class during the regular or specified university drop-add period and must allow those students to make up work missed before adding the class.
