When students enroll in the University, it is assumed that the necessary arrangements have been made to attend classes faithfully. Regular class attendance is important. Students are responsible for material presented at each class meeting. Students in vocational programs are expected to view class attendance in the same way they would view attendance in a job situation. Vocational instructors are expected to be able to speak to a student’s job habits as exhibited by job skills just as readily as the technical skills obtained.
ATTENDANCE – ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
Students are expected to attend all course sessions and to complete all course work and arrange to make up work as specified in the course syllabus. When circumstances make attendance impossible, such absences should be reported to the instructor as soon as possible. The attendance policies for all programs will be included in the course syllabi.
ATTENDANCE – CAREER AND TECHNICAL PROGRAMS
Because of the unique and special requirements of the career and technical programs, the attendance policies for the programs will be included in the course syllabi.
ATTENDANCE – WEB COURSES
Students should devote as much time to their web classes as they do to their on-site classes. Assignments are available the first day of class and students may find themselves getting behind if they do not login to their online class the first week of classes.
STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS
Veterans Administration regulations require that all faculty track student attendance. Students who stop attending class without following the proper withdrawal process and students who withdraw before the end of the semester may be required to return a portion of their Veteran’s benefits and/or financial aid.
