Weekly Schedule and Class Attendance

Most courses receive three credit hours. Core courses generally follow a lecture format, sometimes with discussion sections. Electives and summer courses have a limited enrollment and are generally offered as seminars, requiring more student interaction.

Students are expected to attend every scheduled meeting of a class. Instructors have the prerogative to set attendance policies for their individual classes and will state their policies in their syllabi. Absences may result in a reduction of the student’s grade up to and including a failing grade for the course.
