Regular attendance is expected of all students in all courses. Any unexcused absences from ensemble or practical study courses or three unexcused absences from any other music course may result in the student being required to withdraw from the course or ensemble, or may result in a failing grade being assigned.
Students absent from a class for three or more consecutive meetings due to illness may be required to present a certificate from a physician. Prior approval for extended absences from class for reasons other than illness must be obtained from the instructor and the director.
Unexcused absence from a class test may result in a grade of zero for the test. Make-up tests may be allowed in special circumstances.
