Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes. No administrative control of attendance is exercised except as hereinafter provided. In case of illness, students should explain their absence directly to their instructors. Grades shall not be reduced because of absences due to illness when students have met their instructors' requirements for making up back work. Students may report illnesses to the University Health Service, which will verify dates of illness if requested by faculty members.
Students whose names appear on a course roster may be asked to drop the course or be added to the end of the waiting list at the end of the second class session if they have not attended either class or have not communicated their intention of attending the class to the instructor or the department chair in writing. In the case of a class that meets only once a week, failure to attend or to communicate the intention to attend either to the instructor or department chair by the beginning of the second meeting could result in the same action.
