A minimum attendance at 70% of seminars yearly is required to pass course BIOC 696, receive fellowships and any letters of recommendation from the Department.

The attendance formula for seminars is:

  • plus 10 from any in the Unified Series (adding to around 70% of all research seminars)

Attendance is recorded by signed attendance sheets. If you are unable to attend a seminar for urgent personal reasons, academic commitments (courses or exams), Teaching Assistantships (TAs), research-related travel, or leave of absence, notify the SAO in advance.
