Attendance Policy

Faculty members will include a detailed attendance policy on each module syllabus. In general students are expected to attend classes, labs, and lectures. If a student will be absent for any reason, the student should, where possible, inform their professor in advance. Faculty members will normally give permission for one missed class over the course of the semester, on a non-assessment day, for academic or other reasons. However, professors may, at their discretion, require additional work to compensate for the loss of in-class learning. If students will miss more than one class, including for academic reasons, faculty members have discretion to impose a reasonable grade penalty or assign additional work in accordance with their specific attendance policy, stated on the module syllabus.
