Graduate Policies and Procedures
Sara Schenirer allows one excused absence per course. Missing more than one class will result in a grade drop (A to A-). Missing a third class may result in failing the course.
In extenuating circumstances (high fever, a sibling’s wedding, your own wedding!….) you may contact the professor and explain the situation. Please note even if the professor granted you permission to miss the extra class, this does not mean there will not be a natural grade reduction because of missed classwork.
Two latenesses are the equivalent of one absence.
Every professor and administrator will provide you with contact information. As is expected in a professional environment, only use the contact information provided to you by your professors and administrative staff.
Please allow for a 48-hour workday-window to receive a response when you contact a professor or staff member (this does not include weekends). Therefore, if you email a professor with a question about an assignment the night before it is due, you will likely not receive a response before your assignment is due.
BEWARE! We DO NOT tolerate any form of plagiarism in our school. Make sure that you understand what constitutes plagiarism, so that you don’t suffer from the consequences. Click here for details on the plagiarism regulations.
Online Class Preparedness:
Please ensure that you have appropriate technology and internet accessibility in your home. This would include a laptop or desktop with a mic and webcam.

Wishing all a wonderful semester!
