Properly enrolled students are required to attend the first day of class. Failure to attend may result in the student being dropped from the class.
It is the responsibility of the individual professor to set attendance guidelines for a course. Most, but not all, professors will drop students from the class roll if the student has an excessive number of absences. Non-attendance may also result in a grade of F. Unavoidable absences should be reported to the instructor immediately after, if not before, the absence occurs.
