Texas A&M University | Department of Architecture | ARCH 350 | Campagnol | Syllabus | Spring 2019 | 5Attendance Policies The University views class attendance as the responsibility of an individual student. Attendance is essential to complete the course successfully. University rules related to excused and unexcused absences are located on-line at The University’s approval of this course is contingent on covering the subjects outlined in the syllabus. You must be in class to receive the information. Borrowing notes or meeting with the instructor during office hours is not equivalent to being in class. Excessive absences may result in failing the class. Roll may be taken periodically; credit may be given for attendance, and attendance may be influential in determining borderline grades. Project due dates will be provided in the project statements. Students should contact the instructor if work is turned in late due to an absence that is excused under the University’s attendance policy. In such cases the instructor will either provide the student an opportunity to make up any quiz, exam or other graded activities or provide a satisfactory alternative to be completed within 30 calendar days from the last day of the absence. There will be no opportunity for students to make up work missed because of an unexcused absence. Excused Absences University rules concerning excused absences may be found at .

This notification should include an explanation of why notice could not be sent prior to the class. If the absence is excused, the instructor must either provide the student with an opportunity to make up any quiz, exam or other graded activities or provide a satisfactory alternative to be completed within 30 calendar days from the last day of the absence.

A student whose absence is excused under this subsection may not be penalized for that absence and shall be allowed to take an examination or complete an assignment from which the student is excused within a reasonable amount of time after the absence.” Classroom BehaviorTexas A&M University supports the principle of freedom of expression for both instructors and students.
