In addition to the requirements of the School and University, and in accordance with Core Culture of being present, the MBA program requires students to attend each class.
Students that miss more than 33%, less than or equal to 50% of their classes (unexcused) will at most receive a P1 for their course grade
Students that miss more than 50% or more of their classes (unexcused) will receive an F for their course grade
Depending on individual professors’ requirements, fewer absences than listed above may have additional ramifications including but not limited to maintaining enrollment in the class and course grades. Check course syllabus for more information specific to each class.
We understand conflicts arise. Below is a list of absences that are considered excused.
Religious observance – no documentation needed
Military Service – letter from commanding officer
Court appearance – summons from the court
Illness – letter needed from student’s doctor stating when the illness began and for how long he/she should be staying home
Family emergencies, such as death or serious illness of immediate family member – OSA will determine what kind of documentation is required
Absences are only excused in documented cases listed. Your absences will not be excused for interviews, weddings, student activities, conferences, personal travel, etc. Students must provide notification in advance of absence from class.
For core, use the “core absence” quiz on your course’s Canvas home page
For electives, notify your professor directly
Videotaping classes information is available here
Both OSA and faculty must be notified of absences lasting more than a few days; documentation will be necessary.
