According to the catalog, "Students are expected to attend every
class." (See Seton Hill University Catalog, p. 28-29, "Class
Attendance" and "Excused Absences".)
Repeated late arrivals and early departures will begin to count as
Seton Hill University recognizes that extra-curricular activities of all sorts are important components of a liberal arts education. Nevertheless:
Students who miss deadlines for any reason are still responsible for the material covered that day.
An excused absence does not automatically grant an extension for any work collected, assigned, or discussed that day.
to Seton Hill policy, you must complete 80% of the course material
before you qualify for an incomplete, and you must clear the request
with the registrar before the last day of classes.
5.1.1. Emergency Absences
Those who miss deadlines due to an unplanned emergency should submit an "Absence Form," with proper documentation, as soon as possible.
For each class that you miss, print out and complete an "Absence Form" (available at http://jerz.setonhill.edu/teaching/AbsenceForm.htm). After you initiate this contact, we can discuss when or whether it will be possible for you to make up the work that you missed.
Before you contact me about material that you missed, please consult the online syllabus and/or a classmate's notes to determine exactly what you need to make up. (If you ask me to e-mail you a summary of what you missed in class, I will refer you to this document.)
For some classroom activities, such as offering timely feedback on a peer draft, there may be no appropriate make-up assignment. (See 5.2 Participation.)
5.1.2. Scheduled Absences
Those who miss deadlines due to a scheduled activity must plan to complete all assignments beforehand. Coming up with a plan to accommodate your needs may involve extra work on my end, so please submit an acceptable "Absence Form" (see above) as soon as possible.
