Attendance Policy

All students are expected to attend all classes. Absence from class for any reason does not relieve the student from the responsibility of completing all assigned work and may adversely affect the student’s final grade when class participation is considered in awarding grades.

Each faculty member establishes an attendance policy for his or her courses, including laboratories, announces it to each class at the beginning of the semester, and includes it in writing as part of the course syllabus. It is recommended that students be permitted no more than 4-5 contact hours of absence in any course.
