TMU CLASS ABSENCE POLICY

No faculty member is required to take class attendance in his/her course or to use class attendance as a factor in

student grading. If a faculty member uses attendance as a factor of his/her class grading policy, he/she must allow at

least the following number of excused absences with no negative grade effect:

5 absences in a 3-session/week class

4 absences in a 2-session/week class

2 absences in a 1-session/week class

Excused absences include unavoidable circumstances beyond the control of the student, significant illness, and

University-sponsored travel to represent TMU (e.g. intercollegiate athletic events and musical group performances).

Faculty members may, but are not required to, make any allowances for unexcused absences. Faculty members are

required to allow students to complete grade-related in-class work (e.g. assignments, quizzes, tests) for excused class

absences. Faculty members may but are NOT required to allow students to complete grade-related in-class work for

unexcused absences. For scheduled excused absences (e.g. University-sponsored travel), the faculty member may

require grade-related in-class work to be submitted prior to the absence. For unexpected excused absences, the faculty

member must allow the student a reasonable time to complete and submit the missed work. Faculty members may

institute a grade effect for excused absences beyond the minimum.

ACADEMIC ADVISING

When students are admitted to the University, an academic advisor is assigned to assist them in planning their

program of courses. Student orientation is provided at the beginning of the year for general information, and

academic advisors assist students prior to each registration. Students are encouraged to maintain close contact with

their advisor in order to plan their university program properly. Students on academic probation receive special

advising and must enroll in courses designed to help them meet the academic demands of university life.

Although the University seeks to provide students the assistance that they need in their academic career through

academic advisement, final responsibility for meeting all program, residence and graduation requirements rests with

the students. One of the most important tools is this catalog. Students should become thoroughly familiar with the

catalog in order to keep up with their own records and to make certain that they are meeting graduation requirements,

including general education courses and grade point average. The academic requirements of the catalog under which a

student enters become the student’s academic contract. Academic requirements may be lowered but never raised

under a particular catalog. Students are strongly encouraged to maintain possession of this catalog for future

reference.

ACADEMIC PROBATION

Students entering on academic probation are limited to 15 units per semester. They must earn a minimum GPA of

2.00 at the end of the semester to be removed from probation. All students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.00

will be placed on academic probation for one semester. If their cumulative GPA remains below 2.00 at the end of that

semester, they will be subject to academic disqualification. A student subject to academic disqualification may appeal
