Class attendance is critical for success! Attendance policies apply to face-to-face
and web classes.
Registration in a course obligates the student to attend regularly and be punctual
for any face-to-face classes.
Students who, without previous arrangement with the instructor or department, fail
to attend the first two class meetings of a course meeting multiple times per week
or the first meeting of a class that meets one time per week MAY be dropped from the
Nonattendance for a web-based course is defined as failure to log onto Blackboard
or other instructor-designed websites within one week of course start date without
previous arrangements with the instructor or department.
Instructors may drop a student for nonattendance only during the regular drop/add
period of the term.
Nonattendance does NOT release students from the responsibility to officially drop
any course for which they have enrolled and choose not to complete.
