Only students who are officially enrolled (either for credit or as an auditor) may attend class. A student is responsible for the content of courses in which he or she is officially enrolled. The establishment of specific policy concerning class attendance requirements, as well as announced and unannounced examinations, is the responsibility of the individual instructor. If absences seriously affect a student's class work, the instructor is required to report this fact to the appropriate dean, who will transmit the information to the Office of Admissions and Records. Classes are not to be dismissed or rescheduled for extracurricular functions.
See the Religious Accomodation policy for details on excused absences based upon religious observances.
