Attendance Policy

In each term, students enrolled in on-ground sections are expected to be on campus and attending class beginning with the first day of classes. Students in online sections are expected to log in and participate in class beginning with the first day of classes.

Students who join a class after the first day of class during the university add period, or who are approved for late registration by the instructor and the Graduate School of Engineering, are responsible for all coursework missed prior to enrolling. Enrolled students who do not attend class during the first week of a semester risk being dropped from the course.

In the interest of students’ success, the college does not support the arrival of students to class after the university add deadline. Students should not expect to be added to a class after the university add deadline and will be held responsible for the academic, financial, or immigration consequences due to their late or nonattendance without prior approval.

In cases where an enrolled student cannot arrive to campus by the first day of class due to circumstances beyond their control, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor for approval and notify the Graduate School of Engineering.
