Class Attendance

Inasmuch as regular class attendance contributes substantially to learning, students are expected to attend all scheduled meetings of each course. However, since attendance requirements vary, the number of absences permitted also will vary from one course to another. The instructor will inform the class of attendance policies.

Students who are absent from class are responsible for the completion of assignments made during their absence.

Students may be terminated from class by the instructor for excessive absence. The student may petition to the instructor for readmission to classes through a general petition which must be signed by the instructor.
