Attendance Policy Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. A student with three absences may be dropped from class.

1. Attendance at all scheduled classes is expected.

2. A student who is absent from class for 3 days, without notification to faculty, may be withdrawn from the program by the program director.

3. Students on campus but not in class are considered absent.

4. Late arrival to class is disruptive. Arriving seven minutes after the scheduled start of class constitutes a tardy. Leaving early is the same as a tardy. Three tardies for class will equate to one day absent. Students who consistently arrive late (2 or more consecutive times) will be counseled and a plan of corrective action determined.

5. It is the studentís responsibility to notify the instructor prior to any absence.

6. Students who arrive after the exam starts but before it ends, may take the test without penalty. They are given no additional time.

Determination of Final Grade The following method will be used to determine each studentís grade in the course: All daily work grades will be averaged together to make one test grade. That grade will then be added to all unit exam grades and divided by nine
