Auburn University at Montgomery has a universal attendance policy. Students are expected to communicate directly with their course instructors regarding all attendance conflicts or concerns. Please review the AUM Attendance Policy document attached below if you have specific questions concerning class attendance. If you continue to have questions regarding the AUM Attendance Policy, please speak to your course instructor directly or contact your academic advisor.
The University bases its class attendance policy on the premise that regular communication between the course instructor and student as well as among students themselves is of significant value in the learning process. Because University curricula involve multiple and diverse types of instruction, however, individual units may vary from this policy due to state or accreditation requirements and will inform students of those attendance requirements. All course instructors will monitor attendance during the first two weeks of class to meet federal financial aid guidelines.
