After all, your choice in enrolling in University and specifically inthis course is your part of your job as a student this semester. As such, any student missing more than four days,which during the summer is equal to four weeks (!) of class, will fail the course.Additionally, provisions in the Affordable Care Act (yes, ‘Obamacare’- this part is still with us!) require that wetake attendance to fulfill stipulations affecting financial aid.The course covers a broad period of time and is very information dense, meaning we cover a great dealof material.
