Registration and Add Policy
There are three designations of courses, each with specific registration requirements. For most courses, students may register or add through the Registrar's Office anytime through the seventh calendar day of the term. For courses designated "Instructor Permission Required," students may register or add only with the instructor's permission. For courses designated "Instructor Permission Required after Term Begins," students may register or add until the first day of the term, after which they need to obtain the instructor's permission. Departments must notify the registrar which courses require instructor permission when the courses are scheduled. Students registering after the term begins are responsible for all missed assignments and cannot expect that due dates will be altered.
Attendance and Drop Policy
Instructors establish attendance policies and penalties for absences
for individual courses; penalties may include lowering of the grade or
even failure if the absences exceed those permitted by the instructor.
Such policies and penalties should be included in the course syllabus and
available to the students at the first class meeting. For courses designated
"Instructor Permission Required after Term Begins," students may be dropped
from the course for being absent from the first two class meetings (for
courses meeting more than once a week) or from the first class (for courses
meeting only once a week). When this policy is utilized any student missing
the designated class(es) may be dropped from the specific class section.
The instructor must notify the Registrar's Office promptly for the students
to be removed from the roll.
