Class Attendance

Date Implemented: December 11, 2002
Date Revised: January 29, 2008

Registered students must attend classes that have specified meeting times, dates and locations. Sanctions may be imposed for failure to attend class. Students may only attend classes in which they are officially registered. Instructors should admit into the class only to those students whose names are on the class roster or provide official proof of registration. No credit will be issued to anyone who attends a class for which s/he is not officially registered.

General attendance policies are published in each graduate school's handbook; more specific attendance policies may be published in individual instructors' syllabi.

Important Note: In the absence of a more stringent policy at the school or college level the University Graduate Academic Policies apply. Should a graduate program not have a specific policy or should there be omissions or gaps in the policy for a specific graduate school program, the University Graduate Policy shall govern.

The Graduate Academic Policies are the responsibility of the Graduate Curriculum Committee Convener. For additions or revisions contact
