More Information

Academic Course Absences

Because the summer session condenses a whole semester or year of curriculum into a short and intense course of study, students may only miss 1 of the 14 days of a term and still earn course credit. No excuse can waive additional days missed. Furthermore, final exams will not be given early. No exceptions.
