Students are expected to attend all classes and laboratory periods for which they are enrolled. There is no university-wide policy defining conditions under which an instructor should or should not excuse an absence, other than university-sanctioned absences (academic and athletic competitions, class field trips, etc.). Instructors are responsible for the maintenance of standards and quality of work in their classes. Absences occurring for any reason, other than university-sanctioned activities, is an individual matter between student and instructor. Students are directly responsible to instructors for class attendance and for work missed during an absence for any cause.
Enrollment is verified in the second week of each semester (first week in block terms). Students that have not begun attendance by that timeframe will be administratively withdrawn from the course.
