Registration FAQs

Attendance and Student Responsibility

You are reminded that attendance is mandatory and unexcused absences may affect your grade. You will not be dropped from a course for non-attendance. If you do not properly drop or withdraw within the published deadlines you will have an "F" grade recorded on your transcript and you will be responsible for full tuition fees.

Please be courteous and inform your instructors ahead of time if you have to miss a class. Faculty email addresses can be found through the employee directory.
