Course Requirements That Require Student Attendance Outside of Scheduled Class Time

School of Public Health Policy

At times faculty may wish to require an assignment that requires students to attend sessions outside ordinary class time. For example, a faculty member teaching a summer course may wish to administer an exam outside class time in order to devote all scheduled class time to teaching and learning activities, or a faculty member may require field trips that occur at a place and time that differs from that of the scheduled class.

If the additional requirement will necessitate additional class sessions held at the School, they must be scheduled with the Office of the Registrar at the time the semester schedule is submitted to the registrar’s office. The information will be included in the scheduling materials so that students are aware of all course requirements prior to registration.

Additionally, all such extra-class requirements must be included in course syllabi so that students can be aware of the requirements and plan accordingly. Faculty are responsible for keeping their syllabi up to date and for posting them so that all students, both those in the course and those considering taking the course, can have access to them.
