Class Attendance – 404.4

Back to Faculty and Staff Affairs

University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Policy Name: Class Attendance
Policy Number: 404.4
Effective Date: September 13, 2011


Each faculty member has the prerogative of setting specific attendance requirements for classes. In some courses, active student participation is an integral part of the course, and the instructor may base a portion of the students’ grades on attendance and participation. In general, students are expected to attend class regularly. Students who miss class are responsible for finding out about the material covered, homework assignments, and any announcements or examinations.

On the 10th day of classes, students who have not attended in class will be administratively withdrawn by the instructor. Students may be administratively withdrawn from a class by the instructor for excessive absences during the semester.
