Excused absences must be obtained in advance. The GSBS policy states that students taking a full-term graduate course offering are allowed up to three (3) excused absences from any required activity and is determined at the discretion of the course directors. Once a student exceeds and misses more than allowed for the length of the course, the course directors must notify the GSBS Student Affairs Dean, who will then contact the appropriate Program Director.
Attendance will be taken during the first 10 minutes into the session. Arrival after that time will constitute an absence.
