If I don't show up for the first day
of class, will I be automatically dropped?
It's up to the instructor whether to drop you from the class if you are a "no show"
at the first meeting. Don't assume that you will be dropped - if you aren't planning on taking
the class, drop the class yourself as soon as possible. On the other hand, don't assume
that you won't be dropped - if you are planning on taking the class, contact the
instructor to explain why you will miss the first meeting, and ask the
instructor not to drop you.
