Students who are registered in a class and miss the first meeting may lose
their right to a place in the class, but the instructor may consider special
circumstances. Instructors will generally only exclude students through the
census date for non-attendance. It is the student’s responsibility to drop
classes in time to avoid fees and/or grades of “W”.
Students who, because of mitigating circumstances, are unable to attend
the first-class meeting should leave a voice mail message or email for the
faculty member. This, however, does not guarantee students a seat in the
class if they do not attend the first-class meeting.
