Graduate evening programs are designed for motivated learners who take responsibility for their education. In an eight-week program, it is assumed that a student will not miss any classes. However, recognizing that graduate students may be working adults, one absence may be compensated for (at the instructor’s discretion) through additional assigned work. Two unexcused absences will result in a grade drop. Three unexcused absences are unacceptable. A student with three or more unexcused absences may, at the discretion of the professor, fail the course and be required to re-take it.

Note: Excessive absences will jeopardize international students’ F-1 visa compliance.
