Class attendance and participation is a key component of education. Each faculty member is responsible for providing students with a copy of his/her attendance policy. Faculty members make final determination of what is an excused or unexcused absence. The student is encouraged to discuss the attendance policy with the faculty member at the beginning of the semester. If a student anticipates or encounters a problem with attendance which cannot be resolved with the faculty member, they should meet with the Director of Services for Students with Disabilities to discuss alternatives.
