Psychology Department’s Minimum Attendance Policy (NEW!)

The Psychology Department requires that all students taking traditional “in-class” courses meet a minimum attendance requirement in order to earn a passing grade. Class attendance is defined as “attending class from start (no more then 10-minutes late) to finish.”

Students not meeting the Minimum Class Attendance requirement will receive a “WP” or “WF” as their final grade (depending on their class average).

School closings (storms, power, etc.) or instructor absences are counted as a completed class (counts toward the MAP requirement).

What this means for you:

  • For 3-credit classes meeting once per week (i.e. Developmental Psychology), students must complete a minimum of 11 classes (attending entire class) in order to meet the Department’s MAP requirement. It is the student’s responsibility to keep track of their attendance.
  • For 3-credit classes meeting three times per week (i.e. General Psychology), students must complete a minimum of 33 classes (attending entire class) in order to meet the Department’s MAP requirement. It is the student’s responsibility to keep track of their attendance.
