Unexcused Absence(s)

Freshmen and Sophomores: After four (4) unexcused absences and with agreement of the instructor, department head, and academic dean, the student may be assigned a grade of “F.”

Juniors and Seniors: Attendance is not required; however, students are expected to attend all classes. Failure to do so may jeopardize the student’s academic standing. Students are not exempted from covered work, tests, or assignments, and an absence that occurs on the day of a quiz, examination, or an assignment may result in failure.

Tardiness: Tardiness is equivalent to an absence unless the instructor excuses it at the end of the class period. The student must take the initiative to seek an excused late entrance.

Right to Appeal: Any student penalized for excessive absences may appeal to the academic dean.
