Class Attendance and Student Absences
Each faculty member determines class attendance policy. Any absence can only be excused on a basis of negotiation between student and faculty member.

Class Enrollment Lists
At the beginning of each semester, the Office of Admissions and Records furnishes each instructor with a list of students who have registered in each course. Only students who are regularly registered for a course may attend. No grade or credit will be given to students for any course in which they are not properly registered.
The maximum course load for graduate students in the College of Education is 16 credits per semester. During the summer sessions, no more than 9 semester credits may be taken at any one time and no more than 15 credits from combined summer sessions may be taken. Any credits beyond these limits must have signed approval by the student’s graduate advisor and department chairperson in which the student is enrolled. Use the “Request for Credit Overload” form for this purpose. It may be obtained in the Graduate Studies Office. When required signatures are obtained, it is then returned to the Office of Graduate Studies. A graduate student who devotes time to other occupations is expected to limit the course load according to time available for graduate work.
