Students are expected to attend all lectures, seminars, laboratories and field work for each registered class and to complete all work assigned by the instructor for the course. Advance arrangements for unavoidable absences should be made with the instructor whenever possible. Neither absence nor notification of absence relieves the student of the responsibility for meeting all course requirements. Make-up of course requirements missed because of extenuating circumstances shall be worked out between the instructor and the student upon the student's initiative. Instructors are required to allow for such make-up when a student is absent because of participation in approved university activities, university programs (that the student is required to attend) or when absence is required by order of a physician. A student must contact his/her instructor on the first day the student returns to class. The instructor may have special attendance/requirement policies for particular classes, whenever those policies are not in conflict with the student's right to make up missed requirements as described above.
When absent for three consecutive days or more, a student may ask the Office of Student Experience and Engagement to send an informational note to his/her instructors; however, excused absences may only be granted by the class instructor.
The University Health Center does not provide medical excuses to students for the purpose of being excused from class. The only medical excuse provided will be for those students who have a physical disability and cannot participate in a class activity. This excuse will be for the activity only and not from attending the class. An enrolled financial aid recipient who fails to attend classes (or stops attending) may be required to repay some or all of the assistance credited to his/her UCM account for the semester.
