The fact that classes are scheduled is evidence that attendance is important. Students should maintain regular attendance if they are to attain maximum success in the pursuit of their studies. Students who have not attended any classes during the first two weeks of the academic term, are automatically disqualified to charge tuition fees to federal funds and are responsible for their payment. The instructor, after receiving the class lists, will submit, in writing, the names of all such students to the Office of the Registrar.
It is recognized that the record of class attendance may vary according to the student, the instructor, or the course. On occasions, it may be necessary for the student to be absent from scheduled classes or laboratories. The student is responsible for contacting the instructor and for all work, completed or assigned. Instructors in charge of courses in all programs of study are required to include in their midterm and final grade reports the total number of absences of all students. The Registrar will not accept reports if this condition is not met by the instructor.
