9. Am I automatically dropped if I do not attend the first day of class?

You are required to attend the first class meeting or drop the class prior to the first day. If you miss the first class meeting or who arrive late may be administratively dropped from the class by the instructor. While instructors may administratively drop a student from a class, it is a student’s responsibility to officially drop. (Students are cautioned never to depend on this faculty option, but to take responsibility for appropriately dropping the class.)
