University of Louisville Undergraduate Catalog
Summer 2010 \u2013 Spring 2011
Class Attendance
University Policy
Policy regarding class attendance are established by
each academic unit and are discussed below.
Unit Policies
College of Arts and Sciences

The College assumes that all students will accept
responsibility for attending all classes. Attendance is
an obvious factor in knowing what material was
covered and what assignments were made during the
class period. It is the student's responsibility to find
out what work was missed. Absence from class in no
way relieves the student of responsibility for any of
the course work.

Instructors are not required or expected to investigate
prolonged absences. Students who stop attending
class without officially dropping before the
advertised deadline will remain on the class roster,
and instructors will assign these students the grade

Instructors who choose to do so may include
attendance in determining a student's grade.
Instructors who use attendance as a factor must
indicate on their syllabus what their policy is and
how attendance will affect the student's grade.

College of Business

Regular class attendance is expected of all students.
Participation and interaction with others is a critical
component of an overall quality learning experience.
Attendance and participation, if so indicated in a
course syllabus, may be used to partially determine
the course grade along with other grade components
such as examinations, homework assignments.
presentations, etc.

Dental Hygiene Program
Lower and Upper Division: Class attendance policies

are determined by the individual instructors.
Instructors must announce policies relevant to
attendance and, if announced, may use attendance
and/or participation in discussion, field work, and
laboratory work in determining grades.

Upper Division Only: When the absence of students

interferes with their work in a course, instructors may recommend to the Program Director that the students be dropped from the classes. If this recommendation

is approved under the provision of a performance
evaluation hearing, students will be withdrawn and
assigned the grade of \u201cW\u201d. Instructors are not
required or expected to investigate prolonged
absences. Students who intend to drop a class, but
who stop attending without processing a Change of
Schedule Form will remain on the class roster and
instructors will assign these students the grade of \u201cF\u201d.

College of Education and Human Development

The college has no specific requirements concerning
class attendance, although individual instructors may
announce their individual policies. The absence of a
student from a class session in no way relieves the
student of responsibility for work covered or assigned
during that session.

When the absences of a student interfere seriously
with the student's work in a course, the instructor
may recommend to the dean that the student be
withdrawn from the class. If this recommendation is
approved, the student shall be withdrawn from the
class and assigned a grade of "W".

Kent School of Social Work
BSW Program Withdrawal Policy

A currently enrolled student who plans to withdraw
from the Kent School must send a written request to
withdraw from the school to the BSW Program Co-
Directors. This letter can be sent via mail or e-mail. It
is the student\u2019s responsibility to take care of all
university business (i.e., financial aid, work study,
library fees, parking, etc) prior to leaving the

Leave of Absence

When students are unable to maintain continuous
enrollment, they may be granted a leave of absence.
Students requesting a leave of absence are required to
write a letter via mail or e-mail to the BSW Co-
Directors indicating the reason for the absence and
the anticipated date of return. Students who are on a
leave of absence will be placed in an inactive status
within the admissions office. All course work must be
completed within a 7-year period from the student\u2019s
matriculation. A leave of absence must conform to
this requirement.

Return Policy
The student is responsible for satisfying any
outstanding obligations prior to contacting the BSW
