Oral Communication > Attendance Policy

In any oral communication course (SPANLANG 10, SPANLANG 15, or SPANLANG 100) you must attend 90% of the course to pass. That is, in SPANLANG 10, you may have no more than two absences, and in SPANLANG 15 and SPANLANG 100, you may have no more than three absences in order to pass the course. In addition, three tardies count as one absence, and any tardy of 15 minutes or more counts as an absence.

Language Center Absence and Makeup Policy
Stanford language classes are taught in the target language, with priority given to student production and practice. Class attendance and time on task are essential to acquiring active language skills. If students are to become proficient, they must speak with each other and with their teacher. They must read things in common and discuss those readings, and they must articulate their reactions to discussion and materials in real time.
Students who anticipate missing class during the quarter due to official University-sponsored activities or scheduled medical procedures, for example, should notify their instructor during the first week of class regarding the date(s) of expected absence(s) and the activity involved (or, in the case of medical or family emergency, as soon as they are able).
If you must be absent, you have the privilege of making up that absence for a limited number of absences, pending instructor approval. Any missed class must be made up within two weeks. No makeup sessions may be scheduled during the university end-quarter or final exam periods, i.e., after week 9 of the quarter.
