Attendance at all classes is mandatory unless otherwise stated in the course syllabus or granted accommodations through the ADA office. A student that misses more than 5% of classes will need to take a leave of absence or withdraw from the program, as the ability to be successful in the program is unlikely. Please refer to University policies on Pregnant and Parenting Students and Students with Learning Disabilities.
Each student is granted one personal day per semester for which absences are excused. Personal days may not be utilized during block exams, quizzes, in-person group work, required labs, or exams/quizzes. Students do not need to provide rationale for taking personal days but must notify the Program Director in advance. Personal days cannot be divided across multiple days and will not carry over from the preceding semester.
