To succeed in this class (and for this class to succeed) you will need to attend all course sessions, and to arrive to sessions on time. If this is likely to be a problem given your other commitments, this class may not be for you. The official attendance policy is as follows:
- You will receive an automatic zero for any work missed due to an unexcused absence*.
- Beginning with your second absence, your grade will drop one letter per absence. (With your second absence an A becomes an A-, with your third absence the A- becomes a B+ and so on.)
- Two late arrivals (~15 minutes late or more) count as one absence.
*An unexcused absence is any absence that has not received explicit approval at least 1 week in advance of the class in question. (Excluding true family or medical emergencies.) If you have a prolonged illness or have other unexpected circumstances that will affect your attendance, please reach out as soon as possible so that we can find a solution together.
