Class Attendance

An update has been made to the Student Record Regulation regarding Attendance (pg. 378) for credit students. See below.

A. Attendance
  • Regular attendance is expected of students who are registered in face-to-face courses and in distance education classroom environments.
  • For hybrid courses, attendance is defined as regular and substantive student participation in virtual learning activities as well as attendance at required face-to-face meetings.
  • For online courses, attendance is defined as regular and substantive student participation in virtual learning activities.
  • Attendance requirements and policies specific to each course are stated in the course syllabus.  Students should be aware that lack of regular attendance and/or lack of substantive student participation as appropriate for the course format will adversely affect their grades in those classes in which attendance is a stated requirement. For courses in which attendance is not a stated requirement, student grades may be adversely affected by failure to satisfactorily complete assignments and course work. 
  • Regular attendance and active participation promote student success.
B. Certification
The registrar reserves the right to deny certification of attendance or withdraw such certification due to unacceptable
absences.

C. Visitors
Only students officially registered for a course may attend. No visitors (including children, family members or substitutes) shall be allowed in classes without the permission of the faculty member. A student who has never been registered, been dropped from a class, through his or her own action or omission by the college, will not be reinstated into a class after the last scheduled day of class before the final examination period.
