Language Class Attendance Policy

Absences from a foreign language class adversely affect student performance and the ability to earn a high final grade. It is the student’s responsibility to remain current with coursework when absent from class as well as keep track of their attendance. There is no distinction between “excused” or “unexcused” absences besides the following with written documentation: observation of religious holidays, students representing the university (e.g. sports teams), or military or other government duty.
