ATTENDANCE POLICY

Attendance is expected and required at each class meeting.  Every three(3) unexcused absences will cause a drop of one full letter grade.

 

Any student who misses two consecutive weeks of class or has missed 50% of class periods by mid-term may be administratively withdrawn from class.  If the withdrawal takes place within the first 6 weeks of class, the student will receive a grade of “W”.  If the withdraw takes place after the 6th week of class, the student will receive a “WF” or “WP”.  The student will be notified of this action by the Registrar’s Office.  Readmission will be considered only for extenuating circumstances as approved by the Chief Academic Officer and Registrar.  In such cases, where readmission is approved, a readmit fee of $350 will be charged.  If a student drops below full-time status of 12 hours, financial aid may be adversely affected.  Resident students dropping below 12 hours will be asked to move out of campus housing.
