FACULTY SENATE BILL 12-A-18

Approved by the Faculty Senate
April 4, 2012

BRIEF SUMMARY: This bill specifies the policy portion of the existing Faculty Handbook section on Class Attendance (Chapter 3, Section C4).

REVISING "CLASS ATTENDANCE" TO ESTABLISH A POLICY SECTION

BE IT RESOLVED THAT: subject to the passage and approval of both this bill and its companion bill establishing a corresponding "procedures" section, Chapter 3, Section C4 of the Faculty Handbook be amended by replacing the existing content with the following "policy" section (with the companion "procedures" to follow it in the Handbook):

Class Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend all classes and to complete all assignments for courses in which they are enrolled. An absence does not relieve the student of the responsibility to complete all assignments. If an absence is associated with a University-sanctioned activity, the instructor will provide an opportunity for assignment makeup. However, it is the instructor's discretion to provide, or not to provide, makeup work related to absences for any other reason.

A student not present for class during the entire initial week of a scheduled course may be removed from that course roster unless notification by the student is provided to the course instructor by the end of the first week.
