Regular and punctual attendance is essential to successful academic achievement. Each student is responsible for all work from the first day of class and must make satisfactory arrangements with the instructor regarding absences. The instructor’s absence policy is explained on the course syllabus.

A student who requires an extended absence (greater than three school days) should notify the Dean of Students, who will determine whether the excuse is warranted.

The student’s involvement in classroom activities and discussions is encouraged and expected. Therefore, attendance is not only important, but is essential to the learning experience.
