CLASS ATTENDANCE REGULATION
Students are expected to attend all classes and labs, arriving on time and remaining for the full period, and instructors will include in their syllabi specific details of the consequences of absences from their classes. Students are permitted up to a maximum of one absence beyond the number of class hours they meet in any given week (i.e., if a class meets for three fifty minute periods a week, for example, the student may miss up to four unexcused absences during the term).
