Attendance Conflict Policy
Whenever possible, University sanctioned events should be scheduled to avoid missed class time by students. If a class must be missed due to an athletic or other University sanctioned event, the student is expected to inform the instructor(s) as soon as the event is scheduled and is responsible for all information, tests, materials and assignments missed. If the student has provided the required documentation in advance, the University recommends that instructors do not penalize students academically for these sanctioned absences. Students should make all efforts to avoid other absences.
Accommodations can be made in accordance with the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Students are expected to attend all classes. A student anticipating absences should meet with the instructor to make the necessary arrangements for make-up work.
Students who attend at least one session but do not officially drop or withdraw within the established time frames will receive a grade as assigned by the instructor and are financially responsible for outstanding tuition. Online students are expected to participate via the course shell multiple times per week as stated in the course syllabus.
