Students are expected to attend classes regularly. Failure to attend may be taken into consideration by instructors when assigning grades. Students who miss the first class meeting, are absent for two contiguous class meeting or have too many absences MAY be dropped by the Instructor at any time during the semester until the final deadline for withdrawal. Instructors may have more restrictive requirements for attendance and these requirements shall be stated in the class syllabus. Student's that miss class due to verifiable extenuating circumstances beyond the control of the student (i.e. accident, illness, death in immediate family, etc.) should inform their instructors prior to missing class meetings . A student who has been absent because of extenuating circumstance should report to the instructor on the day of his/her return. No absence excuses a student from making up the work missed. Students should realize that absences may adversely affect their grades. Please Note: It is the responsibility of the student to withdraw in order to meet all fee/ refund deadlines and it is also the responsibility of the student to withdraw by state mandated deadlines to avoid grade penalties.
