Prior to enrolling in classes, students in all University programs should anticipate the number of class meeting absences that may result from family obligations, work-related responsibilities, and such other University-sponsored activities as Debate Team and athletic events. Once a class has begun, a student who anticipates that he or she will not meet the attendance requirements to earn a passing grade should withdraw from the class. According to University policy, a student must follow official procedures for withdrawing from a class in order to receive a tuition refund. Any student who stops attending a class without having officially withdrawn from that class will receive the grade of "F" and must assume any remaining financial obligations for the class.
Please see the Undergraduate Attendance Policy in the Spalding University Catalog for further details.
