Class Attendance

Each faculty member is responsible for establishing a clear policy on class attendance for each course, which should be included in the course syllabus. 

Each student is responsible for being aware of and adhering to the attendance policy for each of their classes.  If a student must miss a class for legitimate reasons, the student should follow the procedures outlined in the Attendance Policy for Students.

Each student is responsible for creating and maintaining their schedule of classes for each term. 

At the beginning of the term, faculty may drop a student from their course if the student does not attend the first class session for which the student is enrolled. Students must not assume that they will automatically be dropped from a course if they are absent for a class period. Students who do not attend a class in which they are registered will receive a failing grade for that class if they do not withdraw following college policies and procedures.
