Class Attendance Policy
Attending class is mandatory. Graduate students are expected to attend all classes, to be punctual, and to remain for the duration of the class because there are limited class meetings and a great deal of material to cover.
Only one excused absence will be allowed in a course. An excused absence request must be submitted in writing to the instructor prior to the absence, unless there are extenuating circumstances. The instructor will confer with the program director if there are questions or concerns about an absence. If a graduate student is granted an excused absence, that person will be required to complete additional work equivalent to the time missed from class. The instructor will assign this work. If makeup work is not completed by the end of the semester, it becomes an unexcused absence.
No unexcused absence is allowed. If a graduate student has an unexcused absence or misses a class without prior approval, he/she cannot receive credit for the course. If a candidate has a second absence in the same course, he/she cannot receive credit for the course.
