The University expects all students to attend regularly and punctually all
classes. The instructor in each course has authority to set specific attendance
policies consistent with the nature of the course and with the methods of
teaching and grading.
Faculty members will inform students of class attendance policies at the
beginning of each term. Although the student is responsible for complying with
the attendance policy, a faculty member may warn a student about poor
attendance. If the student fails to return to class, to complete the course
requirements and to properly withdraw from the class, a grade of “F” will be
awarded at the end of the term.
Travel for athletic competition may not be scheduled from the opening day of
classes for any traditional term to the end of Drop/Add period for that
term. Requests for exceptions to this policy must be presented to the Director
of Athletics. Athletic events that are part of the logical progression to a
Conference championship or NCAA championship are excluded from this
