Basically, students may be absent up to three times in one term. However, if they make a point of contacting their teacher before or soon after the absence each time, to learn what they missed or what they should do, then they will be allowed to be absent up to four times. If not, four absences means that they will not receive credits for the course.
|成績評価の方法・基準||Evaluation will be based on written work (50%), oral reports and presentations (25%). Attendance and attitude in class will also affect students' grades (25%).|
