If the dean or ABA says anything, the prof "lost" his attendance sheets or something like that. I think how strictly schools comply with the rule is a case-by-case basis. My school makes a big deal about. Other schools apparently don't.
attendance sheets? seriously? we have 55 minute classes and the prof starts talking on minute one and doesn't stop. Only way he'll know you're not there is if he calls on you.
It's the ABA. I'm sure schools can fudge their attendance stats just as well as they can fudge employment states .
Also, in two of my classes we filled out our attendance online.
