Class Attendance & Retaking Courses

 

Attendance Policy:

At the discretion of the instructor, students may be dropped from a class if they do not attend the first class meeting for a once-a-week class, or the first two class meetings for a twice-a-week class. 

In addition, based on the pedagogical needs of any particular class, an instructor may set specific attendance guidelines.  In these cases, students will be notified in advance by the instructor.

If you are considering missing classes, or wish to add a class after it has started meeting, you are responsible for contacting the instructor in advance to confirm that it is OK for you to add late, and to agree to a plan for how you will work to catch up on missed material. Students are responsible for reviewing the CTools site, class syllabus and emails sent from the instructor for additional attendance guidelines regarding each class.

Repeating Coursework:

Effective for students admitted Spring/Summer 2012 term or later, if a core class is failed, students have one chance to re-take the class and receive a passing grade.  If the core class is failed a second time, the student is withdrawn from the program (subject to appeal for extenuating circumstances).  Both the original failing grade and the grade received when the course is retaken are used to determine the student's academic standing and honors.  A student may retake a course in which a passing grade was received if the desire is to strengthen knowledge or improve the grade, but the credit hours will be counted only once toward degree requirements.

In general, classes numbered 742 through 745 are designated "Special Topics" and may be retaken as the course content varies from term to term.  However, because this is not always true, it is important for the student to verify that the class is indeed different from when it was taken previously to receive credit for it.

For students admitted prior to Spring/Summer term 2012, students may retake a failed course for credit if they wish to do so and must retake a failed course if it is a degree requirement or a prerequisite to other courses that the student wishes to elect. Both the original failing grade and the grade received when the course is retaken are used to determine the student's academic standing and honors.  A student may retake a course in which a passing grade was received if the desire is to strengthen knowledge or improve the grade, but the credit hours will be counted only once toward degree requirements.
