Attendance and participation are important parts of learning in this class. In order to ensure that you have the best possible learning experience in this class you are allowed a maximum of THREE (3) UNEXCUSED ABSENCES. With a 4th unexcused absence, your final grade will drop 5% and a notification of excessive absence will be sent to you and your Dean. For each unexcused absence beyond the 4th your final grade will drop 10%. Only absences permitted by University policy and verified as per section 3.1 (pages 4-5) of the Undergraduate Academic Code will be excused.
(These absence numbers and penalties are just an example. Instructors have discretion over class attendance at all times.)
