Policy Provisions
1.

Attendance Policy


It is the responsibility of the University to deliver instruction; it is the responsibility of students to receive instruction by actively participating in classes and completing course assignments to the best of their ability within the timeframe of the course offering. Therefore frequent attendance and active participation in all classes, laboratories, and examinations regardless of delivery modality is an obligation that all students are expected to fulfill. Research has shown that student attendance is directly and positively correlated with success in a course.

 

Students who stop attending class, or who miss all or most of their classes excessively, will be subject to Administrative withdrawal from the University and all applicable grading and withdrawal policies. Students who are administratively withdrawn by the university will not be allowed to continue living in residence halls, nor will they be allowed to continue representing the University in any manner, intercollegiate athletics, or any form of competition or University representation. Students who are administratively withdrawn due to lack of attendance or excessive absences will not be eligible for a refund.

 

Students are expected to communicate with their instructor, in advance, when an absence will occur. It is at the discretion of the faculty member to accept late assignments or to allow make up work due to absences. To this end, each course syllabus clearly delineates expectations regarding absence notification of faculty by students, class participation, and acceptance of late work.
