VII. Attendance

  1. Experience demonstrates that regular attendance enhances academic success. Students are expected to attend each meeting of their registered courses, whether taught online or in the traditional classroom setting. Participation in classroom activities such as lectures, films, guest speakers, class discussions, labs, group activities, and online work contributes to student success in college level coursework. Attendance in an online course requires student to demonstrate an active and continued presence in the course through participation in assigned activities such as discussion posts, submissions, written assignments and tests.
  2. It is the student’s responsibility to inform the instructor of an anticipated absence ahead of time. Students are responsible for completing any missed work, as allowed by the instructor’s syllabus and/or course outline.
  3. Earned grades must be based on demonstration of student learning outcomes and/or participation, not solely on attendance.
