Is mandatory. You may skip three classes without penalty because life is complicated. If you skip four (4) classes, your grade will be lowered by one full grade point (i.e., an A becomes a B). If you skip five (5) classes, your grade will be lowered by two full grade points. If you skip six classes, your grade will be lowered by three full grade points. If you skip 7 classes you will receive a failing grade for the course. If you have a perfect attendance record, I will add 2.5 points to your total grade (i.e., an A- becomes an A).
SIGNIFICANT EXCEPTION: If you are ill, do not come to class. Impress me with your maturity and consideration. Go to the health center, get care and ask the health center folks to send me an email saying they saw you. There is no penalty for missing a class because you are sick. Conversely, if you come to class sick, you will expose your peers and professor to your germs, and risk your professor's unrestrained wrath. If you experience a non-health related event that requires personal attention (family emergency, etc.), get in touch with the Dean of Student's Office and let me know when you'll be back to class. There is no penalty for missing a class because you suffer a personal trauma or tragedy. Indeed, I'll be more than happy to help you catch up when you get back.
If you're reason for not coming to class does not constitute a health or personal emergency, take one of your three personal days, and do not full obliged to tell the gory details.
