Mount Vernon Nazarene University: Life Changing

Class Attendance

Students are expected to attend all class meetings of courses in which they are registered. In the event of absence, whatever its cause, the student is responsible for the course work missed.

Students must contact faculty personally about absences before the absences occur, unless providentially hindered. If emergencies occur in evenings or on weekends, students should leave a message on the faculty's voice mail or email.

Decisions about make-up work and grade penalties due to excessive absences are at the instructor's discretion. Attendance policies are to be included in course syllabi.

The following absences will be given consideration by faculty when an explanation is verified to faculty by the Academic Affairs Office at the student's request.

Standard practice is that these be initiated prior to the absence.

· assignments with official University organizations and prearranged field trips;
· emergencies or death in the immediate family;
· legal responsibilities;
· extended illness when an authorized medical official requires confinement to room, home,  or hospital.
