Teaching Policies & Resources — Class Lists, Submitting Grades, and Student Attendance
The Registrar provides class lists to instructors through MAUI, the University's student record information system. Faculty should review their class list at the beginning of each semester or session and daily through the first five days of classes.
Before and during the first five days of class, students add and drop courses online through MyUI, allowing class lists to be updated rapidly during the first five days of classes. After this period, students must add and drop using paper forms.
Instructors may not allow students to attend a course unless they are registered for it by the deadline on the Registrar's calendar.
Students who do not wish to earn credit may register as an auditor if given permission to do so by the instructor.
Departmental or instructor attendance and tardiness policies must be clearly stated in the required syllabus. If a complaint or issues arises concerning a student absence, CLAS uses the stated policy within the syllabus to adjudicate the problem.
University policy requires that students be permitted to make up examinations missed because of illness, mandatory religious obligations, certain University activities, or unavoidable circumstances. All instructors must comply with this policy. The attendance policy should provide options for making up examinations missed due to an excused absence.
More information on student attendance, the required information on the syllabus, and related matters may be found on this page.
Attendance policies should include procedures to accommodate student illness and absences due to emergencies. These policies should be clearly stated on the syllabus and discussed during the semester, especially during key periods, such as at mid-term.
