CHARLES FRANCIS LEINBERGER, PH.D.
Attendance Policy

  1. At the discretion of the instructor, attendance may be taken one of two ways: either the instructor will take roll, or the instructor will provide a sign-in sheet. If a sign-in sheet is provided, upon arrival to class, each student will sign the sign-in sheet. Students will use black or blue ink. Students arriving late (tardy) will use red ink. Each unexcused tardy is counted as one half of an unexcused absence. Students attending a section in which they are not enrolled will be counted as absent.
  2. A student's final grade will be lowered for excessive unexcused tardiness and absenteeism.
    1. For a fall or spring semester class that meets three times each week, the student's grade will be lowered one letter grade after the first 9 unexcused absences plus one additional letter grade for every 6 subsequent unexcused absences.
    2. For a fall or spring semester class that meets twice each week, the student's grade will be lowered one letter grade after the first 6 unexcused absences plus one additional letter grade for every 4 subsequent unexcused absences.
    3. For a fall or spring semester class that meets once each week, the student's grade will be lowered one letter grade after the first 3 unexcused absences plus one additional letter grade for every 2 subsequent unexcused absences.
    4. For a summer class that meets five times each week, the student's grade will be lowered one letter grade after the first 4 unexcused absences plus one additional letter grade for every 3 subsequent unexcused absences.
  3. Excused absences include, but are not limited to, university-sanctioned functions (such as an out-of-town ensemble performance or NCAA sports event), medical emergencies, and severe weather conditions.
