Attendance and Grading

A class is a community, and being-there is important, as it still is in professional life beyond campus. Absences will reduce your semester points in the discussion and attendance category. More than three absences will begin to affect your semester grade. You will not be able to receive a passing grade with more than five absences. Exceptions of course will be made for written medical and administrative excuses.
