Please refer to the Administrative Policy Regarding Class Attendance and Class Absence (3 -01.2) for additional information regarding responsibilities of the instructor and of the student.
Students are expected to adhere to the class attendance policy established by the instructor for each course. However, due to the episodic nature of some disabilities, a student may not be able to fulfill the requirements of the attendance policy for disability-related reasons. Student Accessibility Services (SAS) has established the following procedure for consideration of the modification of the class attendance policy.
4. It is important to note that depending on the nature of the course, a modification to the attendance policy may not be an appropriate accommodation, as accommodations cannot impinge upon the intrinsic nature of a course or program. SAS will determine the appropriateness of modifying the attendance policy through consultation with the instructor, department chairperson and/or dean, and careful consideration of course elements, including, but not limited to: course description, syllabus statement regarding class attendance, method of grading, whether student participation is an essential method for learning, external licensure requirements, and the impact on the education experience of other students resulting from non-attendance. If a modification to the attendance policy is not appropriate for a specific course, the student should schedule an appointment with the Accessibility Specialist to discuss other possible accommodation options.
