English Composition Attendance Policy
English Composition Department-wide policy: ENGL 100 and ENGL 101 require active student involvement; therefore, it is expected that students will attend every class session on time and will stay until the end of each session. Attendance will be recorded at each class session.* Because unexpected conflicts do arise, students will be allowed to miss up to 1 week of class sessions during a full-semester course without penalty. Students who accrue more than 3 weeks** of missed classes cannot earn a grade higher than D+ and will have to retake and successfully complete the composition in which they are enrolled in order to satisfy the University's writing skills requirement.
*Instructors may count an accumulation of tardies/late arrivals/early departures as absences at their discretion.
**3 Weeks = 6 classes for courses meeting 2 days a week or 9 classes for courses meeting 3 days a week.
