Attendance PolicyAttendance will be taken during every class. Students are expected to attend all classes. An absence is “excused” only if the professor labels it so. You will lose 3 points from your grade for every unexcused class that you miss. Six (6) unexcused/undocumented absences will result in automatically failing the course. If you are late, I will take off points (1-3).
PoliciesNot coming to class on a consistent basis will lead to poor performance in the course overall.
