Academic Workload - Business students are expected to spend three hours studying and working on course-related activities for each hour spent in the classroom (i.e., a 12-credit-hour class schedule typically requires 36 hours of work outside the classroom each week).

Class Attendance - Students must attend all class meetings of every course in which they are enrolled during the first week of the semester unless they have previously obtained departmental approval for any planned absences. Without such approval, a student who is absent may be dropped from that course during the first week by the dean of the school or college responsible for the course.
