The Academic Program


Conduct of Courses

Regular attendance at classes is expected. Responsibility for attendance—and for learning the instructor’s standards for attendance—rests solely with each student. Absences for illness or other urgent reasons will normally be excused, and it is the student’s responsibility to contact her instructors and, if necessary, her dean, in a timely fashion to explain her absence. The student should consult her instructors about making up the work. If it seems probable to the dean that a student’s work may be seriously handicapped by the length of her absence, the dean may require the student to withdraw from a course or from the entire semester.
