Class Attendance

While individual instructors’ policies may vary, punctual and regular attendance is required. When absence from a class becomes necessary, the student is responsible for informing the instructor prior to the absence whenever possible. The student also is responsible for the subsequent completion of all work missed during an absence. Instruction missed may affect the student’s grade, regardless of the reason for the absence.  Frequent absences may result in the termination of veterans’ educational benefits and other programs of financial assistance. Failure to attend the first and second class sessions may result in administrative withdrawal from the course. 

Attendance policy for distance learning courses: Failure to demonstrate active participation within the first seven days of an online class may result in administrative withdrawal from the course. For online courses, never attending is defined as never participated in any class discussions, blog postings, or learning activities.
