Attendance—Students are expected to attend all classes, including recitation and laboratory sessions, beginning on the first day of regular instruction as stated in the University Academic Calendar. The University shall not schedule, nor shall the student participate in, any official function during the scheduled final examination period. Events where students are officially representing the University scheduled on dates that are out of University control are exempted. For more information, please review Michigan Tech's policy on class attendance.
Absences—If possible, students should contact the instructor prior to the absence and arrange a mutually acceptable makeup procedure. Otherwise, students should account for the absence at the first opportunity. Students who are unable to notify instructors concerning their absence from class or who must notify several instructors on short notice should contact the Dean of Students Office. Students having excused absences, as defined in the policy on class attendance, will be allowed to make up missing assignments or equivalent work.
Academic Integrity—Students who cheat, plagiarize, or fabricate data, as well as students who help others cheat, plagiarize, or fabricate, can receive sanctions of warning, probation, suspension or expulsion from the University, depending on the severity of the offense. See the Academic Integrity Policy.
Individual Efforts—The University expects that students' work on individual assignments and examinations will be their own private efforts that will follow acceptable practices. While group efforts and study groups are often appropriate and acceptable, students are expected to submit their own work. Students should refer any questions concerning use of outside resources or collaboration on assignments to their instructor.
Weather Closure Policy—The president, provost and vice president for academic affairs, or their designated representative may decide to close the University for a specified period of time (examples might include but are not limited to prolonged power outage, prolonged loss of heating capability, or closure of main highway due to inclement weather). Notification will be through Safety First Alert, the University web site, and local media. Faculty and students will be excused from reporting to class.
