Regular class attendance is necessary for satisfactory academic progress. Attendance in class and laboratory sessions is an obligation assumed by every student at the time of registration. Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to attend a class if not officially enrolled. Any student who fails to attend a class during the first three sessions may be dropped unless the student has advised the instructor and obtained an absence approval from them in advance. An instructor may drop a student from class when absences become excessive. Excessive absences are one more absence than the class meets per week. Example: if the class meets three times per week then the maximum number of absences allowed is four.
Absence from Class
Absences for medical reasons of less than one week do not need to be reported to the College. If you are ill or injured, or have a personal emergency, and must be absent from classes for one week or longer, notify your professors and the International Student Program (ISP) Office immediately to discuss your options.
