General Policy

To ensure student success, it is the expectation for all students to attend all classes regularly for a student to benefit from continuous instruction. Faculty may lower a grade when absences occur.  It is the student’s responsibility to refer to the syllabus for each enrolled course for specific requirements and expectations per faculty.

To ensure the integrity of the academic process and for federal financial aid compliance, attendance will be recorded by the faculty and reported to the College Registrar’s Office at the end of weeks 1 and 2, during submission of midterm grades and at the end of each term.  A student is considered a non-attendee in any course modality when he or she does not physically attend a class session or does not log in and participate in the course content as per the federal financial aid guidelines.

Students who receive federal financial aid and do not physically attend or log into classes will be dropped from their classes and have their financial aid cancelled or reduced. The federal government mandates that federal monies for non-attendees who receive federal financial aid be returned to the Federal Government.  For additional information concerning Financial Aid, refer to the Financial Aid section of this catalog.
