I went to a large university in Texas. They were supposed to take roll the first several class sessions because the official policy was to automatically drop anyone from the class that did not show the first week or two (don't remember the exact number). Some teachers weren't even diligent about that. In any case, after that no one cared if you showed up or not.

If the teacher didn't show up, the unwritten rule was that, as a courtesy, we would wait 10 minutes for a grad student, 15 for a professor, before leaving.
