Dropping Students Who Fail to Attend First Day of Class

In order to improve students’ access to classes they need and want, the faculty has adopted a policy that requires student attendance at the first meeting of all classes. The purpose of this policy is to identify students who have decided to drop a particular class as early as possible so that students who want to enroll in that class will be able to do so.

An instructor may choose to cancel a student’s registration if the student fails to attend the first class meeting of a closed (ie full) class; however, the instructor is not required to do so.  If the instructor cancels the student’s registration, a notice will be sent to the student’s WSU email address.
