Students are expected to attend all classes in which they are enrolled and to know the attendance policy of each of their instructors. Under no circumstances should a student stop attending class without formally withdrawing. This can result in a failing grade on the student’s permanent record. Attendance at the first class is expected. Registered students who do not attend the first day and do not contact the instructor may be dropped from the class for non-attendance.
