Faculty cannot alter attendance policies to accommodate a student's disability if the attendance policy counts for a percentage of the course grade for the semester, or if failure to maintain attendance would lead to a lower grade. An unexcused absence is treated the same for all students. If a student with a disability is required to miss class because of his or her disability, the student must document such absences as a medical excuse based upon the disability, and this information should be provided to the faculty upon request.
