Attendance of classes and other official appointments is expected and may be included in the calculation of a student’s final grade.
An explanation of absences should be given to instructors. This information should be presented in advance if possible.
Absences are counted from the first scheduled meeting of the class. Non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal from classes or from the college. Procedures to formally drop a course or to withdraw from the college must be followed. Following these procedures may prevent a failing grade on a student's transcript.
Some Health Science and Nursing programs may have attendance requirements that affect progress or retention in the program. Contact the program director for detailed information.
Attendance will be monitored for students who receive Title IV financial aid funds. Lack of attendance could mandate administrative withdrawal and necessitate the repayment of financial aid funds.
