Absences by students in FastForward classes are problematic due to the limited number of class sessions.  If a student expects to miss more than one session, they should be discouraged from enrolling in the class.  If an enrolled student misses more than one session, they should provide documentation for the extenuating circumstance resulting in their absence(s) for it to be considered “excused.”  Excused absences include the list offered in the Class Attendance Policy.  Faculty should clearly outline in their syllabus any potential make-up work allowed for excused absences, or grade penalties associated with unexcused absences. 

Students may add or drop a FastForward course within the first week of the class meeting with no financial penalty, per the Tuition Reversal Schedule from the Bursar’s Office.  Students may receive an authorized withdrawal from a course without academic penalty and receive a grade of “WX” up to Week 4.  After that date, a student seeking authorized withdrawal without penalty must petition the Dean of his or her college, who has sole authority to grant withdrawals without penalty.
