Attendance Policy 3.21

Regular attendance is encouraged in each course for which a student is enrolled.

Suggested procedure:

  1. Faculty keep records of student’s class attendance.
  2. When a student’s absence record equals that of the number of hours in a course, the faculty member should request that a formal notice be sent from the Dean of Academics & Extended Learning advising the student about this matter.
  3. If there is no change in the student’s behavior, and if the individual misses 15 percent or more of the class time in any given course, the faculty member teaching that course has the option of dropping the student from the class.
