Mapl 612 Attendance and Drop Policies, Spring 2001


Attendance will be taken through 9 February (the last day to add courses). If you have three or more unexcused absences during this period then you risk being administratively dropped from the class, but most likely will not be.

You should never assume that you will be dropped from the class simply because you are not attending lectures or not taking exams. If you wish to drop the class, you should follow the University Procedures, which are outlined under ``Drop'' below.

You are expected (but not required) to attend every scheduled class. At all times, you are responsible for knowing every topic covered in class (whether or not it is covered in the book), for obtaining all materials distributed in class or over the web, and for knowing every change in either a homework assignment, a Matlab project, an exam schedule, an office hour, or a course policy that is announced in class or on the web. Graded homeworks and exams will only be returned directly to each student.

The University Class Attendance Policy can be found at http://www.testudo.umd.edu/soc/atedasse.html .


If you are enrolled in this course for credit then you must drop it before the close of business on 13 April to adjust your schedule. This can be done either The University Drop Policy can be found at http://www.testudo.umd.edu/soc/droppolicy.html .
