Attendance at Classes

A student who pre-registers for a course has the obligation to appear at the first meeting of that course. In the case of absence, the student must notify the instructor within two working days of the first class meeting of his/her intention to continue in the class. Otherwise, an instructor is not obligated to keep that student on the class list and may assign his/her place to another student who wants to register for the course.

Regular attendance at classes and other scheduled academic appointments is expected of all students. Instructors are requested to call to the attention of the appropriate academic dean any case of extended or repeated absence. After warnings from the instructor and the academic dean, excessive absence may result in failure in the course. No instructor is expected to give extra help or to grant extensions to a student who has missed classes voluntarily.
