Attendance Policy


To earn course credit in the College of Arts & Sciences, a student must attend at least 75 percent of all scheduled class meetings. Any student who does not meet this minimal standard will automatically receive a grade of "F" in the course. Any University-related activity necessitating an absence from class shall count as an absence when determining whether a student has attended the required 75 percent of class meetings.

In addition to the College of Arts & Sciences Attendance Policy, faculty and students will be guided by the University Attendance Policy in the Undergraduate Catalog. Furthermore, departments and individual faculty members may establish more stringent requirements regarding attendance, punctuality, and participation.

All attendance requirements and penalties for excessive absences will be set forth in the syllabus for each course.

This policy is effective May 16, 2011.
