The University expects all students to attend regularly and punctually all classes. The instructor in each course has authority to set specific attendance policies consistent with the nature of the course and with the methods of teaching and grading.
Faculty members will inform students of class attendance policies at the beginning of each term. Although the student is responsible for complying with the attendance policy, a faculty member may warn a student about poor attendance. If the student fails to return to class, to complete the course requirements and to properly withdraw from the class, a grade of “F” will be awarded at the end of the term.
Travel for athletic competition may not be scheduled from the opening day of classes for any traditional term to the end of Drop/Add period for that term. Requests for exceptions to this policy must be presented to the Director of Athletics. Athletic events that are part of the logical progression to a Conference championship or NCAA championship are excluded from this prohibition.
