Attendance at all lectures is expected. While attendance won't always be taken, instructors appreciate knowing why students are absent. If you miss a class for some personal reason/sickness, please send me a quick note. Also, please let me know in advance of planned absences. Note that regularly missing class is one of the potential special circumstances that could lead to a discretionary reduction in grade.
If you have specific physical, psychiatric, or learning disabilities and require accommodations, please let me know early in the semester so that your learning needs may be appropriately met. Note that you will also need to provide documentation of your disability to the Dean for Student Academic Support and Advising, Autumn Wilke, located on the 3rd floor of the Rosenfield Center (x3702).
