Humboldt State University expects attendance at every class meeting.

Students who have been absent from a class or lab session within the first week of instruction may be dropped for non-attendance by the instructor no later than the end of the second week of instruction. A student who wishes to be reenrolled in a course from which they have been dropped must receive a permission number from the instructor and reenroll in the course prior to the semester add/drop deadline.

Not all instructors will drop students on the basis of non-attendance. Students are responsible for ensuring the correct courses are on their schedules prior to the add/drop deadline. A course not properly dropped receives a "WU" (withdrawal unauthorized), which counts as an “F” for GPA purposes.
