The Department of English follows the University of Dayton’s first-year attendance policy according to which students will be permitted only a limited number of absences. For first-year students, the allowable number of absences in the fall or spring term is equal to twice the meeting times a week (or four class days in any summer session). Thus, for instance, a student enrolled in a course that meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday is permitted only six absences per term. A student exceeding the allowed number will be reported to his or her dean.
Any undergraduate student who has not accrued 30 semester hours of credit is considered a first-year student.
