Attendance Policy from syllabus: Unexcused absences from lecture or lab
result in 1% reduction of your final course grade for each unexcused
absence. Attendance will be taken each lecture and lab. This is
not a class to cut and get notes from someone else. This is a class
where you must come to lecture and lab a few minutes early every time
and be ready to participate for the entire lecture or lab.
Athletes are excused only for Varsity Games (and work is expected to be
made up within one week). No students have earned an A in this
course who have had more than two unexcused absences. If you can not
make a class, you must notify your instructor before the class.
Notification after the fact (Ex post facto) will result in a zero for
that class and assignment. If you miss a speaking assignment
without notifying your instructor before the class or if you miss a
speaking assignment because you were not prepared, you will earn a zero
for that assignment. Only extreme legitimate prior-notification
absences (death in the family, serious illness, or accident) will be
made up. For an excuse to be legitimate you must contact the CALS
Deans Office (Rose Laba, 656-0289, email@example.com) and Rose will notify
Dr. Leonard. This should be a very rare occurrence.
