Regular and punctual attendance at all scheduled classes and activities is expected of all students and is regarded as integral to course credit (University Bulletin 2002-2003, p.67). For the purposes of this course, a student will receive a grade of F in the class on the 12 absence (both excused and unexcused absences are included). Excused absences are due to illness (accompanied by written excuse from university health center, or other attending physician), death in immediate family, or attending an official university function.

Make up work:  
In the case of absences, it is the studentís responsibility to determine what work has been missed. Make up exams and quizzes will be given for
excused absences only. The student should call the instructor on or before the examination day to explain the absence.
