2015-2016 Undergraduate Catalog > Academic Regulations > Attendance
Each professor will determine a class attendance policy for each course. The professor must notify students of the class attendance policy at the start of the semester and may do so by posting attendance requirements on the course syllabus. A copy of the policy must be kept on file in the department office. Students are required to actively participate in their courses and professors are asked to confirm a student’s class participation/attendance through the Course Roster Verification process. Class attendance may impact a student’s course grade per the stated attendance policy.
Excused absences, including absences for participation in approved university events, will not result in a penalty, provided that the student makes up missed work as required by the professor. In case of an extended absence during a semester (e.g., health or medical issues, family concerns, etc.), the student or a designee is encouraged to notify the Registrar in the Student Enrollment Center who will notify the student’s instructors.
