Attendance is required. Illness, religious observances, and participation in university-sponsored activities such as intercollegiate athletics, are usually the only acceptable excuses for absence from class. (See Student Athlete Attendance Policy at the Academic Affairs website.) Absences must be explained to the satisfaction of the instructor who will decide whether or not omitted work may be made up. A student who fails to attend class or to withdraw officially from class after having been warned, may be considered to have withdrawn unofficially and be given an FN grade in the course. A grade of FNN is given for a student who has never attended class.
