Attendance and participation in class activities is an essential part of the learning process, and students are expected to attend class regularly. Some absences are, however, unavoidable. Excused absences for classes will be given without penalty to the grade in the case of (1) a university-sanctioned event [ACD 304-02]; (2) religious holidays [ACD 304-04; a list can be found here https://eoss.asu.edu/cora/holidays ]; (3) work performed in the line-of-duty according [SSM 201-18]; and (4) illness as documented by a health professional.
Anticipated absences for university-sanctioned events, religious holidays, or line-of-duty activity should be communicated to the instructor by [indicate the means of communication] at least [X days]before the expected absence.
Absences related to illness should be documented by a health professional and communicated to the instructor as soon as possible by [indicate the means of communication].
Excused absences do not relieve students from responsibility for any part of the course work required during the period of absence. Faculty will provide accommodations that may include participation in classes remotely, access to recordings of class activities, and make-up work.
If there is a disagreement as to whether an absence should be accommodated, the instructor and student should contact the academic unit chair immediately for resolution.
