Students must be present for at least 80% of the class time to obtain credit for a course. If a student has missed more than 20% of the class time, he or she will fail and the course must be repeated.
If excessive absences are taken prior to week six of the quarter, the student may withdraw from the course or courses, and a grade of “W” will be assigned. If excessive absences are taken after week six, the student may withdraw from the course or courses, and a grade of “F” will be assigned.
If an emergency arises, students must complete an absence request form to be signed by the faculty and approved by the Academic Dean. An excused absence is still considered an absence within the attendance policy. For any extended period of absence, the student must request a Leave of Absence prior to taking it.
