Attendance Policy

杜鲁门的公共文科使命和愿景包括在课程和课外领域变革学习机会的重要性. 这些课程体验与课外体验之间不可避免地会产生冲突. As such, the university expects students to attend all classes, yet recognizes co-curricular opportunities could lead to class absences. Faculty, students, 和工作人员有责任支持维护杜鲁门教育的完整性和学生体验多样化教育经验的能力的环境.

为了方便合理处理缺课,本政策概述了什么被认为是缺课 sanctioned absence and responsibilities for students, faculty and organizers of co-curricular activities.

Truman adheres to Federal law regarding accommodations. 与残疾住宿有关的缺勤将与残疾服务办公室协调处理. 与第九条相关的缺勤将与机构合规办公室协调处理.

1. Sanctioned Absence Policy

a. 被批准缺勤的学生不应仅仅因为缺勤而受到处罚. 本政策中的任何规定都不能免除学生在合理时间内补课的责任.

b. Once a student has missed 6.67 percent 旷课(相当于秋季学期和春季学期一周的课), 教师有权决定是否将额外缺课视为处罚.

c. 有实地实习或临床实习的课程可以按照合作机构的出勤政策进行.

2. Definition of Sanctioned Absences

​​缺课的学生将被视为制裁的原因如下:
(Documentation may be waived at the discretion of the Instructor.)

a. 代表学校参加校际体育赛事.

b. 以大学代表的身份参加预定的专业/学术会议, academic competition, or a field trip scheduled as part of a course.

c. 作为大学联合课程组织的官员参加学生必须参加的预定会议(e).g., a required annual meeting for all presidents of a national student organization).

d. 专业或研究生院面试以及专业工作面试不能重新安排.

e. Health related absences for which valid documentation is presented.

f. Absences covered by Truman’s non-discrimination policy (e.g. special religious observances, military commitments).

g. Other situations not specifically noted in this list, 但须经导师或主管学术事务的常务副校长和教务长批准.

3. Responsibilities of Students

To qualify for a sanctioned absence:

a. Students must be aware of course requirements as outlined in syllabus for the course.

b. Students should notify instructors within the free add/drop period of anticipated absences. Students with unanticipated absences should notify instructors as early as possible.

c. In addition to notification during the free add/drop period, students should once again notify their instructors prior to an absence from class, with written notification.

d. 学生应在缺课前与老师约定,在合理的时间内补课.

e. 学生如遇意外缺课,应及时与导师安排补课.

4. Responsibilities of Faculty

a. Faculty should make course requirements available and clear within a course syllabus.

b. Each instructor will develop a sanctioned absence policy, which follows the Sanctioned Absence Policy and the Definition of Sanctioned Absences. 代替这样的个别政策,部门可以选择制定部门政策. 这样的策略应该明确指定允许的批准缺勤次数(如果超过默认的6次).67%), any course penalties for additional absences and for unsanctioned absences, and the procedures for arranging the make-up of eligible work.

c. 缺课政策应作为课程大纲的一部分,并应在学期自由增减期结束前以纸质或电子形式提供给所有入学学生.

d. Faculty may hold students with sanctioned absences to deadlines for submitting class work, 前提是这些截止日期是课程大纲的一部分,并且学生可以在学期的自由增减期结束之前获得.

5. Responsibility of University Organizations Sponsoring Co-Curricular Activities

a. 大学组织应该尽其所能制定时间表,尽量减少缺课. 他们还应该与参加课程的学生合作,以确保这些学生与教师就他们将错过的课程进行清楚的沟通.

b. University organizations will provide students written documentation, which can be provided to faculty upon request, outlining the purpose of the absence, the time students will leave campus, the time students will return to campus, and the names of all students that will absent.

c. 大学组织将确保学生明白,如果他们被拒绝超过规定的缺席,这些学生可以选择缺席大学认可的课外活动,并且他们的大学奖学金不会受到这种决定的影响.

6. Policy on Absences for Out-of-Class Events, Conferences, and Field Trips

​​In providing a rich cultural education, 杜鲁门认识到,全面的大学体验超越了正规课堂或实验室环境中定期安排的教学. 有许多教育事件或活动发生在这些设置之外(例如.g., concerts, plays, field trips, etc.) that are an important part of students’ liberal arts education. Attendance at out-of-class events may present hardship for some University students, especially those with jobs and other commitments. Therefore, reasonable accommodations shall be made for all students with respect to such events, with the following provisions:

a. ​教师可以安排课外经验,因为他们认为有必要实现他们的课程的目的和目标. When such events conflict with a student’s other class meetings, students must be given the option to attend their regular class meetings without penalty. 对于参加任何此类活动的学生来说,由于排定的课程或家庭或就业责任而造成困难的学生,应给予完成等效替代作业的机会,以满足课程要求.

b. Insofar as possible, 所有期望学生出席的课外活动都将在免费增删期结束时包含在课程大纲中.

7. Appeals

a. Any appeal of a published attendance policy will be a part of a grade appeal; such an appeal must be initiated according to the guidelines outlined in and will follow the schedule mandated by the University Grade Appeals Policy (see Academic Policies and Procedures – Grade Appeals policy).

b. 决定上诉的人要考虑的相关问题包括当事各方是否履行了第3-6部规定的责任.
