Each instructor determines attendance policies for their own classes and students are encouraged to attend class regularly.

When it is not possible for students to notify instructors prior to an absence and when the absence from classes is likely to be for an extended period (generally five class days or more), students or a family member can contact the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management to request the office to notify their instructors.

A full explanation of the University Attendance Policy and Procedures for Notification of Absences is available online.
