Students are expected to attend all classes and lab sections for their registered courses. Any student who anticipates missing a class due to illness or emergency situations is expected to contact their professor as soon as possible.

While students are welcome to travel over winter and summer breaks, the College of Computer and Information Science expects students to return to campus in a timely manner and to be present for the first week of classes each term. Students who do not arrive back to campus on time may be dropped from their classes until they return to campus. The Office of the Registrar posts current and future academic calendars on their website so travel plans can be made accordingly.

Further, students who are hired as teaching assistants will forfeit their position if they are not present on campus for TA training, which takes place in the first week of classes.
