Absence and Drop

Absence and Drop Policy

It is the student's responsibility to withdraw officially from a course.

Stop attending does not constitute a withdrawal. However, because of enrollment demands a student may be dropped by the instructor when not appearing at the first class meeting.

A student may be dropped for excessive absences when the total hours of absences exceed 10% of the total scheduled hours of the class.

Under extenuating circumstances, a student may be reinstated by the instructor.
