Absence and Attendance Policy

Absence and Attendance Policies

Class Attendance

A student is expected to attend all class sessions. Failure to attend class does not alter academic or financial obligations.  If, for any reason, a student is unable to attend classes during the first week of the semester, he or she is responsible for notifying the instructor(s), in writing, of the reason for nonattendance and indicate intentions to complete the course. Failure to attend classes during the first week of the semester may result in an administrative drop by the instructor. Registered students are obligated to pay all fees and penalties as listed on the fee schedule.
