Attendance/Absence Policies

Policy Statement

Students are expected to be on time and attend all classes while abroad. Many instructors assess both attendance and participation when assigning a final course grade. Attendance alone does not guarantee a positive participation grade; the student should be prepared for class and engage in class discussion.


Attend all classes as scheduled. In many cultures, faculty timeliness is understood differently. Students should be on time to class but may need to wait for the instructor to arrive. In addition, class may extend beyond the appointed end hour.
