Cardozo’s policy, reflecting ABA standards, requires regular class attendance. Students who miss more than 20% of the classes in any course are in clear violation of Cardozo policy, and subject to administrative sanctions. Individual faculty members may impose more stringent attendance policies, and may impose sanctions – including reduction in grade or loss of course credit – for violation of Cardozo’s attendance policy or their own more stringent policies. To the extent that any faculty member imposes attendance requirements that are stricter than Cardozo’s policy (either in terms of the number of classes that must be attended or the consequences of the failure to attend classes), such faculty member must provide notice to students in writing or electronically at the beginning of the semester and no later than the end of the Add-Drop period for upper level courses.
