This is not a distance-learning course, nor is it an on-line course. You need to be here, and you need to be on time for class; therefore, if you miss more than nine classes (20%), you will probably fail the course. For a full-semester class meeting two days per week, this means that six (6) absences will result in your being administratively withdrawn from the course. Should this occur before Midterm, the final grade will be a W; after Midterm, the final grade will be a WF. For classes meeting three days a week, nine (9) absences will result in administrative withdrawal. These are cumulative absences, not consecutive, and not determined on the basis of a doctor’s excuse. There are no excused absences, only absences, and each one counts. Habitual (more than five)
