The University and its faculty are firmly committed to both regular classroom attendance and participation in University sponsored extra-curricular activities. Each professor will specify the attendance and absence policy as part of the written syllabus distributed at the beginning of the course. Students seeking an excused absence from class(es), must obtain excused status, in advance whenever possible, from the professor(s) of the class(es), find out the obligations, and schedule whatever makeup work is necessary.

     If it is not possible to speak to the professors prior to the absence, the student must, within a day or two of return to campus, carry out the consultations with the professors of the courses involved. It is the student’s responsibility to set up conferences and to meet the obligations and deadlines established by the professor.
