Attendance Policy

Attendance / Course Structure

Students are expected to attend all class sessions for which they are registered. Instructors are required to take weekly attendance. For on-ground students, tardiness are early departure are considered in reporting absences. For online students, class log in activity serves as “attendance”. Students are allowed to miss 20% of class time without penalty. Absences in excess of 20% of class time may result in an automatic “F”. Appeals for extenuating situations should be discussed with the course instructor. If the student is not satisfied with the instructor’s decision, the student can follow the academic complaint process in the Academic Catalog.
