The educational plan for baccalaureate degree programs depends upon the full cooperation of students and faculty. Prompt attendance at academic appointments (classes, lectures, conferences, and examinations) is an essential part of this educational plan. It is expected that students will keep all academic commitments; the responsibility for work missed because of absence rests entirely upon the student. Attendance is required at seminars, laboratories and practice teaching. In addition, departments may require attendance in any of their courses or course sections where such requirement is deemed consistent with the educational objectives and the manner of delivery of those courses.
