Students are expected to attend classes regularly, be punctual, and complete all work whether present or not. Whenever possible, the opportunity for making up coursework missed as a result of an excused absence is to be worked out between the instructor and the student upon the student’s initiative.
Excused absences include the following:
All other absences are considered unexcused, in which case the instructor is not obligated to provide an opportunity for making up coursework for credit.
* See Administrative Withdrawal Policy listed below.
To validate enrollment in a course, students must attend at least one class during the first week. If a student misses the first week of a course without obtaining prior approval from the instructor, the instructor has the option of dropping the student from the course. The instructor will notify the registrar and student of the drop prior to the eighth day of the semester for semester based courses. Students must attend one of the first two days of a Winter Term course to validate registration in the course. The instructor will notify the registrar and student of the drop prior to the third day.
Students not participating in an online course before the withdrawal date may be administratively withdrawn with or without penalty.
Students who present with administrative situations such as the following will be referred to their Program Consultant/Registrar for action.
