Classes are conducted on the premise that regular attendance is desirable and expected. The individual instructor has the responsibility for communicating at the beginning of each semester the schedule of class meetings and the class attendance policies which are required in the course.
If a student is absent or anticipates an absence, the student's primary responsibility is directly to the instructors, and the student should consult with them accordingly. A student who misses a class is personally responsible for information and assignments communicated during that class session.
Instructors or other University officials who may require students, individually or collectively, to be absent from their classes due to a field trip or similar officially recognized activity are responsible for providing adequate information to the students involved so that the students may provide notice to other instructors.
