Absences for Summer Session Courses
Absences in the first week of classes will not be counted as excused absences and will be penalized according to each course's attendance policy. As the summer session is short and intensive, missing even one class would be equivalent to missing a week or more of course study in a regular semester. Students should carefully re-consider missing even one class, because of how easy it is to fall behind and miss content needed to succeed in the course.
Additionally, it is important to note that the last day to drop any course for a refund and without incurring a Withdrawal (W) on your transcript is the Friday of the first week of classes. If you miss the first classes of the session, you may not be able to make an informed decision about whether you plan to stay in the course. After the first Friday of the summer term, there will be no refunds on courses, and any course withdrawal will result in a W on your transcript. This is why we strongly advise you not to enroll in any course for which you know you will be missing class(es).
