ADDITIONAL ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS Class Attendance: The attendance regulation of the University is based on two principles. First, students are expected to attend class regularly; and second, students are primarily responsible to the instructor in matters pertaining to class attendance. Every student will be held responsible for class attendance and successful completion of academic work. Attendance regulations are intended to encourage student maturity and are based on the assumption that academic success is the student’s primary goal in college. Illinois State University deeply values and supports the required participation of students in Sanctioned University Activities. Instructors will provide such students with reasonable accommo- dations for completing missed exams, quizzes, and the like. The Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs will determine Sanctioned University Activities. It is the responsibility of the student to (1) inform instructors of scheduled absences in advance, (2) where possible and as soon as possible, provide a schedule of all semes- ter absences, and (3) arrange to complete missed classroom work. Ultimately, students are responsi- ble for material covered in class. In the event of disagreement regarding this policy, the issue will be directed to the appropriate Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs for arbitration. The University will accommodate, within rea- son, students whose religious obligations require absence from class. Students who are unable to attend class or take examinations for religious rea- sons should consult their instructors in advance about alternative arrangements. Class Standing: Students in a bachelor’s degree program are classified as freshmen, sopho- mores, juniors, and seniors. A student must have completed 30 semester hours to be classified as a sophomore, 60 hours to be classified as a junior, and 90 hours to be classified as a senior. Students not working toward a degree at Illinois State are listed as Unclassified Students. Major Field(s) of Study: Students may select a major field of study at the time of admis- sion unless the field they choose has special admissions standards. Students who are undecid- ed about a major field are classified as General Students and are encouraged to select a major field of study as soon as possible. The major and minor fields of study available at Illinois State are described later in this catalog. A student may complete the requirements for two majors, both of which will be identified on the student’s tran- script provided all requirements are completed in both majors and the degree is awarded. When a student double majors, the student indicates only one major for purposes of registration. Unless

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
