The “automatic disenrollment policy,” may be used if you send an email notifying your enrolled students at least one week prior to the first day of classes. A sample email would read:

“Students who miss the equivalent of the first two class sessions (i.e., one class for a class that meets once per week) will automatically be disenrolled from the class in order to accommodate students who want to take the course.”

The form to use to drop students can be found at:http://www.chass.ncsu.edu/docs/faculty/non attendance.pdf



Per University regulations, excused absences must fall into one of two categories: sanctioned anticipated situations and documented emergency situations. Anticipated situations (e.g., participation in official University functions, court attendance, religious observances, or military duty) must be submitted in writing at the beginning of the semester or one week prior to the anticipated absence. Emergency absences (e.g., student illness, injury or death of immediate family member, must be documented by the Student Organization Resource Center 515-3323) within one week following the emergency. Make-up work will be allowed only in situations where absences were excused. Please consult the following website for further information on University attendance regulations:



Strict standards of academic honesty will be enforced according to the University policy on academic integrity found in the code of student conduct. NC State Students are bound to an honor code, which states: “I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this test or assignment.” It is my understanding and expectation that a student’s signature on any test or assignment means that you have neither given nor received unauthorized aid. Please consult the following website for further details on student conduct:http://studentconduct.ncsu.edu/



Reasonable accommodations will be made for students with verifiable disabilities. In order to take advantage of available accommodations, students must register with Disability Services for Students at 1900 Student Health Center, Campus Box 7509, 515-7653. For more information on NC State’s policy on working with students with disabilities, please see http://policies.ncsu.edu/regulation/reg-02-20-01



Points earned for incomplete assignments will be reduced in proportion to the degree to which the assignment was completed. For example, an exam requiring three essays, with only one essay completed, will earn one third of the essay point total. Points earned for late assignments will be reduced by 2 points per day late (e.g., an assignment worth 10% can only earn a maximum of 8 points if handed in one day late).



Students will not be given a temporary grade of IN (incomplete) unless they have attended classes regularly for most of the semester, have completed at least 60% of required work, have missed required work as a result of factors beyond their control, and have submitted satisfactory documentary evidence. An IN grade not removed by the end of the next semester in which the student is enrolled or by the end of twelve months, whichever is earlier, will automatically become an F (unless the student can present a compelling, well-documented case for the extension). For the NC State policy on grading and IN grades, seehttp://policies.ncsu.edu/regulation/reg-02-50-03



NC State University provides equality of opportunity in education and employment for all students and employees. Accordingly, NC State affirms its commitment to maintain a work environment for all employees and an academic environment for all students that is free from all forms of discrimination. Discrimination based on race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation is a violation of state and federal law and/or NC State University policy and will not be tolerated. Harassment of any person (either in the form of quid pro quo or creation of a hostile environment) based on race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation also is a violation of state and federal law and/or NC State University policy and will not be tolerated. Retaliation against any person who complains about discrimination is also prohibited.
