Consistent class attendance is vital to academic success and is expected of all students. Grades are determined by academic performance and instructors may give students written notice that attendance related to specific classroom activities is required.
Absences do not exempt students from academic requirements. Excessive absences, even if documented, may result in a student failing the course. An incomplete may be granted if the student has a passing grade, but only if the instructor determines that it is feasible for the student to successfully complete remaining assignments after the semester. Pursuant to university policy, such determinations are within the discretion of the instructor.
