Do I need to attend all of the class sessions to get credit for the class?

You may miss one of the sessions and remain eligible to complete that course. If traveling with your host family, notify the instructor with at least one week's notice. When you return, you will be required to complete an additional writing assignment for that week's work. In addition you will be responsible for reading the material and completing a modified assignment for the week you missed.
If you are absent for any reason, all work from the missed class must be made up and submitted by a date determined with the instructor.
