Administrative drop for non-attendance

In order to maximize registration opportunities for all students, students are required to attend the first class meeting of any regularly scheduled class that meets once per week or at least one of the first two class meetings of any regularly scheduled class that meets more than once per week. Students who are unable to attend the initial class meeting(s) as required must inform the instructor or department office, preferably in writing, that they intend to attend subsequent meetings and do not want to be dropped.

Students who fail to attend initial class meeting(s) as required and who fail to contact the instructor in advance of the absence may be dropped from the course by the instructor.

Students are required to log into online classes within the first five days of the terms. Class accessibility begins on the first day of each term. Students are expected to access online classes the first day.  Students must log into online classes within the first five days of the term or may be dropped to make space for other students.

Students enrolled in classes of high demand and/or limited availability are particularly vulnerable to a drop for nonattendance. Students who receive an Administrative Drop for Nonattendance will receive full credit for tuition paid.

Dropping and reinstatement are at the instructor’s discretion during the first 20% of the term. (See class schedule for specific calendar dates.) Students are NOT automatically dropped for non-attendance.
