    • when they see a connection with grades
attendance12
Attendance
  • 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.
