Attendance Procedures


Student Absence from Class

Students are expected to attend the classes to which they are assigned or for which they are registered.  The Faculty recognizes that there are occasional unavoidable circumstances that cause a student to miss a class.  However, the fact that a student may be absent from a class does not, in any way, relieve that student of the responsibility for the work covered or assigned during the absence.  


It is the responsibility of Faculty members to excuse or refuse to excuse absences of students who missed their classes.  It is the responsibility of the student to obtain excuses for absences and to arrange with the Faculty member in question to make up the work missed.  Excuses for absences must be presented to the Faculty member upon the student’s return to class.  



Unexcused Absences

Unexcused Absences that affect the student’s ability to meet clinical objectives are considered unsatisfactory clinical performance and may result in failure.  Refer to each course syllabus for further information about tardiness and absence from class and/or clinical. Failure to notify one’s clinical instructor prior to the scheduled arrival time is considered unexcused.
