Attendance

Students are expected to attend all class sessions for courses in which they are enrolled. However, it is the responsibility of the individual instructor to evaluate the importance of attendance in determination of course grades.

Accordingly, at the beginning of each semester, each instructor prepares a written statement setting forth the policy for consideration of absences, makeup examinations, and related matters, that will be in effect for that entire semester. The statement of policy on attendance, appropriate to each class, is made available at the first class meeting.

It is especially important for freshman students to establish the discipline of attending all classes and laboratories and to be properly prepared by having done all assigned reading and homework. It can be easily demonstrated that students who fail to attend class do not succeed in college.
