2019-2020 Course Catalog

Student Attendance

Every student enrolled at Chatham accepts the responsibility to attend all required class meetings. To obtain the fullest benefit from their courses, students must participate actively. This means attending regularly, engaging in course activity, completing work on time, and making up work missed because of an emergency absence. It is the student's responsibility to let the course instructor know within the add/drop period if he or she will have to miss class for religious reasons, athletics, or other. In regards to online courses, students are responsible for logging in regularly, engaging in course discussions and other activity, and completing work on time.

Attendance for final examinations is mandatory. Students who are unexcused from a final examination will receive a failing grade for that examination. The appropriate academic dean may excuse absences only in the case of a documented illness or other serious emergency.
