Regular attendance at classes is expected. It is the responsibility of each student to know the attendance requirements and procedures of each instructor. Any anticipated absence that might qualify as excused should be requested from the instructor before the absence.
If a professor requests verification of health related absences, the following procedures should be followed:
Absences due to university sponsored trips or activities are handled by memo to the instructor from the sponsor the group involved. While students are responsible for making up work missed, excused absence notification will be handled by the Office of the Provost.
Absences for personal business should be arranged with the instructor. The course syllabus may indicate any effect this absence may have on the student's grade. Family or other types of emergencies should be reported to and handled by the Dean of Students.
