Mansfield University Attendance Policy

Regular and punctual class attendance is expected. Documented excuses because of illness, serious mitigating circumstances, or official university representation will be accepted by all faculty members, thus permitting students to make up missed tests and/or graded assignments in a reasonable manner at a time convenient for the instructor. Students must provide documentation before absences can be excused. All instructors are expected to make their attendance policies clear in the course syllabus.
