Attendance Policy

Attendance policies vary by program. Program attendance policies are listed on course syllabi. It is the responsibility of each student to clarify the exact attendance policy of his/her particular program of study. No program of study allows absences in excess of 20% of the scheduled class time no matter the reason for the absences. Excessive absences will result in dismissal from the course(s).

Online Courses: Online students must complete an academically related activity each week to be considered active. Simply logging into an online class is not considered to be active. You will be dismissed for an excess of 20% attendance violation (inactivity does not have to be consecutive) in online classes as follows:

* 15 week term - total of 3 weeks of inactivity
* 9 ½ week term- total of 2 weeks of inactivity
* 7 week term – total of 2 weeks of inactivity

Academically related activities include, but are not limited to;

* submitting an academic assignment;
* taking an exam, an interactive tutorial or computer-assisted instruction;
* participating in an online discussion about academic matters

Hybrid Courses: Attendance in a hybrid course is calculated using both in class attendance and online activity.
