Students are encouraged to attend every class as regular attendance contributes to successful course completion.
If you don't attend the first two classes of a course, you will lose your place, at the instructors discretion, to others waiting to register. If you do not attend any classes during a semester or term, it is still your responsibility to officially withdraw from your classes. If you do not officially withdraw by the appropriate deadlines, it is still your responsibility to pay all tuition and fees associated with the class. Not attending class can affect your financial aid.
It is the responsibility of the instructor and their department to keep accurate attendance records and to make required reports as established by Hawkeye's administration. Instructors will publish and distribute attendance policy guidelines during the first class of a course.
