For NDSU class attendance refer to NDSU Policy Manual, Policy 333 for specific student and instructor responsibilities, including absence information. Class attendance policies may not have discriminatory effect (intentional or unintentional) on members of a protected class (see NDSU Policy 100). Students and instructors should note that NDSU Student Health Service does not provide students with excuses for class absences or tardiness due to illness or injury.

NOTE: Students are responsible for all registration activity and must follow published dates and deadlines.  Non-attendance does not absolve students from course responsibilities and does not automatically remove courses from a student's academic record.
