2020-2021 Undergraduate Catalog

Class Attendance

Excused absences are granted for illnesses, emergencies, and for college sponsored activities, e.g., music, sports, and field trips. Policies for other absences such as over-cutting, lateness, and regarding probation students are formulated by the individual professors. These policies will be contained in the syllabus and explained in class. Attendance is required at 80 percent of the sessions of a course in order to pass that course. The maximum allowable excused and unexcused absences (20 percent) are:

3 if the course meets once a week

6 if the course meets twice a week

9 if the course meets three times a week

If students miss more than 20 percent, they may appeal to the Undergraduate Student Appeals Committee if they believe extenuating circumstances were present.
