2.10. Student Attendance Policy
Insofar as attendance is a component of a grading policy, a statement of attendance requirement might also be distributed in written form. If attendance is part of grading policy, careful records should be kept. In any case, all instructors shall, at the beginning of each semester, make a clear statement to all of their classes regarding their policies in handling absences. Students who are absent because of their participation in university-approved activities such as field trips and extracurricular events will be permitted to make up the work missed during their absences. An itinerary for all field trips must be on file with the appropriate department chair or dean in advance of the scheduled event.
