Participation in and exposure to class discussion is critical for mastery of the subject matter, to achieve the learning outcomes and maximize the learning environment. As well, the Edwards MPAcc Program emphasizes the development of high standards of professional conduct.
Punctual attendance is expected at all lectures, seminars, professional development sessions and scheduled activities of the MPAcc program. It is recognized that a student may be unavoidably delayed on occasion; however, arriving late can be very disruptive to colleagues and faculty members. It is at the faculty member's discretion how poor punctuality will be handled.
Regular attendance in all MPAcc courses is mandatory, unless absence is unavoidably caused by illness or compassionate reasons. If this is the case, the student is expected to contact both the instructor and the MPAcc office in advance where possible; documentation may be required. Students are expected to ensure they have completed any missed assignments or readings. Additional assignments may be required and is at the discretion of the instructor.
If a student misses more than two classes of a course, the student may not be allowed to write/submit the final examination for that course.
