Students who do not attend the first class meeting of a course, or who do not notify the instructor or department chair that they will be absent for special reasons, may, at the instructor's discretion, be dropped from that course if, and only if, other students are waiting to enroll at that time. Instructors may use this form to drop absent students. Please note, however, that many instructors do not use this option. Do not assume that a course will be dropped automatically if you do not attend.
This policy does not apply to students who have permission to return after Labor Day due to work commitments. Please be sure to check the list provided with the class rosters before exercising your option in this policy.
