ACD 304–05: Course Enrollment/Attendance
To clarify eligibility for course enrollment and attendance
Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University
ASU provides a drop/add period for courses at the beginning of each semester. The drop/add period is determined by the executive vice president and provost of the university after consultation with the university senate. This time period provides an opportunity for students to complete their registration during the first part of a semester but sometimes results in a student’s missing class sessions, assignments, exams, deadlines for papers, laboratory assignments, and so forth. This occasionally results in a student’s inability to meet requirements of the course that are incumbent upon other students. In such a case it is the student’s responsibility to make up any assignments such as questions, homework, papers, or tests that the instructor requires of other students during that time period. Sufficient time shall be given to complete such assignments, and no penalties of any sort will be assessed against the student because of his or her late entrance into the class.
Anyone who is not an admitted, paying student registered for a course may be denied access to class meetings. Each instructor has the right to monitor classroom attendance and deny access to anyone who has not registered for the course. A student who has been admitted to ASU, has paid tuition and fees, and has registered for a course normally may not be denied access to class meetings.
