​Class lectures, discussions, demonstrations and all other associated educational experiences are critical to the learning process. It is the expectation of the university that students attend and arrive on time to all class, laboratory, shop, practicum, and clinical experience sessions.

Students are responsible for accounting to their instructors any absence and should contact the faculty member following any absence to determine if and when work may be made up.  Habitual tardiness may, at the discretion of the instructor, be considered in computing attendance.

Each instructor has the right to determine their own individual attendance policy.  If a student exceeds the number of absences allowed in the course syllabus, an instructor has the right to drop you from the class.  Instructors who have received a Notification to Instructor accommodation letter stating that a student with a disability has a medical condition which may affect attendance is not required, by law, to waive the attendance requirements.  The statement is merely to inform the instructor that the absence(s) may be related to symptoms or treatment of the condition. If a medical condition may significantly impact attendance, it is imperative that this possibility be discussed with the instructor as soon as possible.
