the same exam at the same time ! University’s Excused Absences Policy It is the student’s responsibility to take exams at the announced time and location on the date scheduled. Students are advised to carefully read and comply with the excused absences policy, including absences for university-sanctioned events, contained in the WCU Undergraduate Catalog. Note that the “responsibility for meeting academic requirements rests with the student,” policy does not excuse students from completing required academic work, and that professors can require a “fair alternative” to attendance on those days that students must be absent from class to participate in a University-Sanctioned Event. Student Assistance provides a notification service on behalf of students who miss classes for an extended period of time due to a medical situation or a significant family emergency. Student Affairs Office defines an extended period of time as three (3) or more days . The Request Instructor Notification for Absences Form is online listed under the Student Affairs webpage which may be submitted to our office to review. A letter is created based on information and/or medical documentation received. Student Affairs cannot send notification when the student only missed one or two days of classes, It is NOT the Student Affairs role to excuse the absence . Should a student's absence extend beyond a week, Student Affairs may suggest additional campus resources. Classroom Etiquette : I expect classroom decorum to be like that you will experience in most business situation. Be ON TIME -- I take roll at the BEGINNING OF CLASS.

Absences totaling more than 4 for the semester result in loss of a portion of the 10% points for attendance, class participation, and homework. Being Late = ½ an absence . 4

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
