Class attendance is mandatory. Absences will affect your final grade:
- City Tech policies permit a total of three (3) absences in a bi-weekly class. The third absence results in a 10% reduction in your final grade. Over 3 absences in a bi-weekly class will result in a WU final grade (which becomes an F on your transcript).
- Each lateness counts as a half absence.
- All assignments must be submitted on time. Since major assignments such as speeches and exams are announced well in advance, a make-up will only be allowed in the case of both a documented illness or family crisis and by the consent of your instructor.
- It is your responsibility to contact the instructor concerning illnesses or other circumstances that prevent attendance, before the next scheduled class meeting or, if possible, before the absence occurs.
