General Class Rules, Attendance Policy & Emergency Evacuation Procedures: 1. Attendance for this course is mandatory. If you are unable to attend a lecture, be sure to borrow the notes for that lecture from a classmate. Excessive absences will lower your grade. If you miss more than 2 classes you will lose a letter grade. If you miss 4 classes you will lose 2 letter grades. This is in effect regardless if your absences are excused or not. At the beginning of each class students will sign in on the attendance forms which are being passed around the room. If the roll sheet misses you as it is passed, you may sign it on your way out of class. University policy allows for student to miss 10% of total class meetings without penalty. N.B.: Students will sign in only for themselves. If a student is caught signing in for another student, both students will be penalized 10 percent of their grade which is equivalent to a drop of one letter grade. In addition, students signing names other than their own maybe referred for disciplinary action (e.g. 15.16 -furnishing false information . . . with intent to deceive). 2. Extended absences due to illness or other circumstances beyond the student's control should be reported by the student to the Dean of Students. No student may be dropped from a course due to absences, however, if you accumulate excessive absences it is highly recommended that you drop the course prior to the deadline printed in the schedule of classes.
