Attendance Policy

All ISM students are required to attend and participate fully in the weekly colloquium to receive credit each semester. Requests for an excused absence due to a professional obligation must be submitted to and approved in advance by Martin Jean. Students with more than one absence will not receive credit for that semester, and thus not be eligible for the ISM certificate.
