- Class 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. If you are late, you will be marked absent.
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
class 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 your college's Deans office (for CALS Deans
Office Rose Laba, 656-0289,
email@example.com) and they will notify Dr.
Leonard. This should be a very rare
occurrence. The TAs and
Dr. Leonard need to hear from the Deans Office for an excuse
to be legitimate."
