Students are expected to be diligent in the pursuit of their studies and regular in their class attendance. Students have the responsibility of making arrangements satisfactory to the instructor regarding all absences. Excessive absences, as defined by the instructor and described in the syllabus for each class, may be penalized, including failure of the course. Policies of making up work missed as results of absence are at the discretion of the instructor and are also detailed in the course syllabus. It is students’ responsibility to be informed of the course policies of each instructor. Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal. The appropriate withdrawal process must be followed. Students who have not attended at least 50% of a class by the 11th day of the semester may be dropped from that course.
