You are required to attend all scheduled classes and will be expected to initial the attendance sheet passed around by the instructor. Two unexplained absences during the semester (including illness, travel, work, etc.) will be overlooked. However, after 2 absences, your total grade for the course may be reduced by 1/3 grade (e.g., 3 additional absences would change an A into a B) per missed class, regardless of the reason for the absence (emergencies excepted). Do not ask the instructor to adjudicate the reasonableness of non-emergencies as excuses.
