EXCESSIVE SEMESTER ABSENCES
When a student misses her/his seventh (7th) class in a course, excused or unexcused, she/he will fail the course for the semester. The student will receive a 63 (N) or his actual academic average, whichever is lower. The semester grade is the only grade that should reflect (N) denial of credit. All other grades, including the nine-week marks and the semester exam, should reflect the actual grades earned by the student.
