Conflicts between class attendance and athletic events

The University recognizes the importance of class attendance by all students. When constructing athletic schedules, class absences must be taken into consideration and should be kept at a minimum.

It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to inform instructors well in advance when classes must be missed, and to make up any assignments missed during the absence.

When participation in athletic competition does require missed class time, student-athletes are considered representatives of the University and scheduled absences from class should be treated as excused absences by the instructor.
