Authority of Instructors

Dropping Students

For the guidance of instructors, each department will develop its own standard concerning dropping students with excessive absences. Individual instructors will include in the course syllabus, which is distributed to students, a statement, consistent with the departmental standard, concerning student absences. Copies of course syllabi will be on file with the appropriate academic dean. Students who have absences exceeding the number permitted under these standards may be dropped by the instructor.

Suspending Students

Any student who violates the Guidelines for Student Conduct adopted by the Board of Trustees may be suspended from a class by the instructor for two consecutive class sessions, to include the day of removal.
