Attendance12 l.jpg

  • Technical Studies Attendance Policy:

    • A student who enrolls in classes in the Technical Studies Division is expected to attend all class meetings.

    • It is recognized, however, there may be situations that make it impossible to attend a class at the stated time. Therefore, absences and/or tardies may be excused by the instructor for the following reasons:

      • Illness

      • Illness or death in immediate family

      • Military duty

      • Unusual work conflicts such as last minute overtime requirements or business emergencies – not just routine work hours.

      • Legal obligations (court appearances, etc.)

  • Each unexcused absence will result in one point being deducted from your final average.

  • Each unexcused tardy will result in one-half point being deducted from the final average.

  • Faculty can develop alternative policies that fit their course design.
