Attendance Policy (Department of Architecture):
[Faculty are expected to inlude the following in all syllabi]:
Policy: YOU MUST ATTEND CLASS FOR THE FULL CLASS PERIOD for every scheduled Class.
There are two kinds of absences, excused and unexcused.
Excused Absences are those for religious observance, illness, military service, or other official activity in which the student is required to participate. For illness, a note is required and if necessary one can be obtained from the DT Campus Nurse free-of-charge. Work or exams missed via excused absences will be accommodated by the instructor. (See HOP 5.09) However, should excused absences become excessive (excessive being defined as absences that result in the student's inability to adequately perform in class or those that effect the completion of assignments) then you and your instructor should discuss the possibility of recording an "IN" - Incomplete. (See General Academic Regulations)
UnExcused Absences ARE ALL OTHERS. For all classes in the Department of Architecture, three (3) unexcused absences will result in the automatic reduction of your final grade by 5% (or 1/2 of a letter grade). Four (4) unexcused absences will result in the automatic reduction of your final grade by a total of 10% (or One whole letter grade). And five (5) unexcused absences will result in YOU FAILING THE CLASS.
Lateness Policy is to be defined by the Instructor (but the Department recommends the following):
LATE WORK Defined
Late work will be automatically reduced by one letter grade, and thereafter, lowered by one letter grade for each subsequent 24 hour period the work is not submitted. An unexcused absence on a final review day (i.e. you don’t show up with your work for a presentation) may result in your failing the project overall. The deadline or due date/ time for work is at the discretion of the instructor and may be the beginning of class, end of class, or any time in between."
