Students are expected to regularly attend class and to inform faculty, preferably in advance, when they will have to miss class. We are a professional degree program and understand some of our students may have full-time work obligations that will conflict with one or more classes during the semester. Faculty will accommodate students who will have to miss a class as a result of professional obligations. Often faculty request students to prepare work to cover the class missed, such as write answers to a few study questions or to submit the work expected in class. We do consider four or more absences in a three-credit course and one absence in a one-credit course to be excessive. Faculty will consult with the MPA Director when a student misses too many classes and determine if problems with excessive absences prevent the student from completing the course. Excessive absences normally mean the student cannot receive credit for the course. [-]
