Regular and punctual attendance at class sessions, laboratory or clinical, and examinations is expected. Attendance is viewed as essential to effective participation in the instructional program. All faculty and instructors will record attendance.
Faculty members specify attendance policies in their individual course syllabi. A student may not be penalized for absences resulting from required participation in University activities such as, but not limited to, athletic competitions, band and choir performances, field trips, and conferences. Practice associated with University activities is not included. Consideration of absences for illness, emergencies, and other non-sanctioned activities will be at the discretion of the course instructor.
Attendance is required for all clinical hours. A makeup clinical is only arranged for illness with health care providers statement or death in family. A makeup clinical is not guaranteed.
Faculty members and coaches in charge of activities which require students to be absent from class should notify the instructor prior to the absence. Each student must assume personal responsibility for all information, discussion, and conceptual analysis that took place during the class. Absence from class will not be accepted as an excuse for not knowing class material.
