Class attendance is considered essential to academic success. Since there are constant learning opportunities between faculty members and students, and between students and other students within the learning environment, it is expected that students will attend each meeting of each course in which they are enrolled.  

Specific attendance policies for each course are determined by the instructor and will be stated in writing in the course syllabus. These policies reflect the instructor’s authority to determine under what terms students may be permitted to make up work missed through absence or tardiness.  

Faculty report participation to the Registrar's Office after the last day to drop with a refund. Students who have not participated by that date will be dropped from the course and will not be financially responsible for the cost of the course. Students attending online classes are considered attending when they have submitted at least one assignment.
