Required Attendance Regulations: Class Attendance

Class attendance at Albany State University is compulsory. Students’ grades are based on daily class participation and performance. Teachers will not administer examinations and quizzes to students who have been absent from class for reasons other than official business of the University, sickness, or emergencies such as death in immediate family, jury duty, court summons, etc. When students are absent for emergency reasons, the number of excused absences permitted should not exceed the number of credit hours awarded for the course except for the most extreme avoidable emergencies (e.g., death of family members, jury duty, etc.). The instructor will officially certify all excused absences.
