Students are expected to attend all classes, lectures and field trips. Absences must be accompanied by the appropriate Dean’s or doctor’s excuse to be validated. More than two unexcused absences will result in a lowering of the final grade. Each additional absence will lower the grade five percentage points. Two cuts for first and second-year students will result in a Section III Delinquency report to the Dean. Three lates to class will be equivalent to a missed class. Students will be responsible for all material covered in classes that they have missed. Project schedules will not be shifted and late penalties will be added to work submitted after the listed due date. The use of phones and messaging devices is strictly prohibited during class time and will result in penalties. Students may listen to music through headphones during working periods only. Eating is not permitted in the studio during class.

If you have a disability for which you are or may be requesting accommodations, please contact both your instructor and the Office of Academic Support Services, University Center 212 (610-758-4152) as early as possible in the semester. You must have documentation from the Academic Support Services office before accommodations can be granted.

Lehigh University is committed to ensuring “reasonable accommodations” to students who are substantially limited by a diagnosed disability. Lehigh students with physical and/or learning disabilities have met the same competitive requirements for admission as all other Lehigh students. Once admitted, students may request support services in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992. The ultimate goal is to ensure that students with disabilities have an opportunity to grow independently to their fullest potential at a competitive university.

It is the responsibility of students with disabilities to identify themselves to the appropriate university contact person to provide the required documentation in order to receive accommodations. Given the specific nature of each person’s disability, “reasonable accommodations” will be determined on an individual basis by the appropriate university contact person.
