Class Attendance Regulations
Students are expected to make the most of the educational opportunities available by regularly attending classes and laboratory periods. Therefore, the university reserves the right to deal with individual cases of non-attendance.

Students are responsible for all assignments, quizzes, and examinations at the time they are due and may not use their absence from class as a plea for extensions of time to complete assignments or for permission to take make-up examinations or quizzes.

Absence from class for cause: (a) participation in recognized university activities, (b) personal illness properly certified, or (c) emergencies caused by circumstances over which the student has no immediate control will be excused by the dean or director of the unit in which the student is enrolled.

Specifically, the class attendance regulations will apply to all students as follows:

A student will be permitted one unexcused absence per credit hour of the course he or she is attending. A student exceeding the number of unexcused absences may be dropped from the course and assigned the grade of “F.” Students may be readmitted to the class with the dean’s and the instructor’s permission.
