2011-2013 Catalog

Class Attendance

 

Regular attendance is necessary for satisfactory achievement.  Therefore, it is the responsibility of the student to attend class in accordance with requirements of the course as established by the instructor.

 

Students will be excused from class without penalty when either representing the College in an approved activity or having an approved reason for not attending.  Reasons for absences must be approved by the instructor of the course.  These exceptions do not relieve the student of the responsibility of making up the missed work as designated by the instructor concerned.

 

Students who enroll in one or more college-preparatory course(s) because of TSI deficiency will be administratively withdrawn from all classes if the course in which they are excessively absent is their only preparatory course.  For a student enrolled in more than one preparatory course, the student may be dropped from the only course affected by absences.

 

Any student who is absent from classes for the observance of a religious holy day shall be allowed to take an examination or complete an assignment scheduled for that day, provided that the proper notification of the absence is given to the instructor of the course missed.  The student should notify the instructor within the first fifteen (15) days of the semester that he or she intends to be absent on the specified holy day.
