Attendance in on-ground classes, laboratories, and examinations is an obligation that all students are expected to fulfill. Attendance is viewed as essential to effective participation in the instructional program. Students who stop attending class, or who miss all or most of their classes excessively, will be subject to being dismissed from the University and will receive a grade of "W" or "WF" depending on the date at which the withdrawal becomes final. Students who are administratively withdrawn will not be allowed to continue living in residence halls, nor will they be allowed to continue representing the University in any manner, intercollegiate athletics, or any form of competition or University representation. Students who are administratively withdrawn from the University due to lack of attendance/excessive absences will not be eligible for a refund.
