3. Student Obligations to Courses

a.    Undergraduate courses are offered on a term basis. Faculty members may set deadlines within the term for required essays or papers, but only the Office of the Dean of the College, acting for the Committee on Examinations and Standing, may authorize extensions beyond the stipulated University deadlines (see The Undergraduate Announcement: Academic Regulations).

b.    Students are expected to participate fully in all aspects of University courses in which they are enrolled.

c.    Cases of excessive absence from a course, failure to submit numerous or significant assignments in a course or unsatisfactory performance in course work as the term progresses should be reported promptly to the Office of the Dean of the College.
