Students are responsible for arranging to make up work missed because of legitimate class absence, such as illness, family emergencies, military obligation, court-imposed legal obligations or participation in University-approved activities. Examples of University-approved reasons for absences include participating on an athletic or scholastic team, musical and theatrical performances and debate activities. It is the student’s responsibility to give the instructor notice prior to any anticipated absences and within a reasonable amount of time after an unanticipated absence, ordinarily by the next scheduled class meeting. Instructors must allow each student who is absent for a University-approved reason the opportunity to make up work missed without any reduction in the student’s final course grade as a direct result of such absence.Etiquette and/or Netiquette PolicyStudents are expected to act in a courteous and respectful manner to all members of the FAU community. This encompasses both offline and online interactions. Online etiquette is often referred to as “Netiquette,” or “Internet Etiquette” - the conventions of politeness pertaining to e-mail and technology use. As the Internet continues to evolve, so do the issues that impact the way we use it and interact with others. It is important to recognize that online communication is different from that of the face-to-face world, with its own unique customs and practices. Please follow Florida Atlantic University Netiquette guidelines which can befound at:Communication and Recording DevicesPersonal Communication DevicesIn order to enhance and maintain a productive atmosphere for education, personal communication devices, such as cellular telephones and pagers, are to be disabled in class sessions.
