Instructor Attendance Policy


In the event you must miss a scheduled class meeting, you are responsible for maintaining the continuity of instruction and achievement of course learning objectives. If missed time is addressed by meeting at an alternate class time, you must ensure that all enrolled students can attend.

  • If an absence is unavoidable (e.g., illness, jury duty), you must contact Summer Session (, as quickly as possible, regardless of the expected duration of the absence.
  • You must keep Summer Session apprised of all absences and related coverage plans. In the event you will miss multiple classes, you should develop alternate arrangements in consultation with Summer Session and  the sponsoring department or college.

After receiving your absence notification, Summer Session will inform enrolled students that a class meeting will be canceled, and will post a classroom notice for main campus classes.
