It is one of the college’s goals to encourage punctuality and responsibility. Students who are absent excessively from the instructional program will fall behind in academic achievement, and may lose interest in or even withdraw from school.
A student may not accumulate more than one absence per credit hour in a course or he may be subject to the withholding of a passing final grade pending a review of the absences by the administration. If the student anticipates an absence, he should make up the work in advance at the instructor’s discretion. Absence is defined as missing more than ten minutes of a lecture hour. Each unexcused absence will result in a minimum of a four percent final grade reduction.
