Class Drops at the Discretion of an Instructor

A student enrolled in any course is expected to be in attendance from the first day or to have notified the instructor or the Office of Student Life that attendance is not possible. A student registered in a section who fails to attend the first two class sessions or provide proper notification may be dropped from the course at the discretion of the instructor. An instructor who wishes to drop a student from a course during the first five days of instruction should complete a drop/add form and submit it to the Records and Registration Office during the “drop/add — change-of-schedule” period. A decision by an instructor to drop a student from a class may not be appealed to any other individual or body in the university. Do not assume that an instructor will use the discretionary drop if you do not attend class. It is a student’s responsibility to withdraw from a class.
