English Attendance Policy

Effective: January 24, 2018

Class attendance is vital to student success because it provides opportunities to enhance learning by interacting with fellow classmates and instructors. With this goal in mind, the English Department created its attendance policy. When students register for a course which meets on a specific day(s) and time, they are consenting to be on time and present. Faculty members follow the policy in an effort to treat everyone equally.

Note:

Remember that absences should be used only if absolutely necessary for bereavement, serious illness, court appearances, and other unavoidable circumstances.

For classes that meet twice a week:

  • Students are allowed a maximum of four absences.
  • Two late arrivals or early departures equal one absence.
  • Absences may result in a reduction of the final grade at the discretion of the faculty member.
  • If a student is absent a fifth time, he or should officially withdraw. Although he or she may continue to attend class, a final grade of “F” may be given at the discretion of the faculty member.

For classes that meet once a week:

  • Students are allowed a maximum of two absences.
  • Two late arrivals or early departures equal one absence.
  • Absences may result in a reduction of the final grade at the discretion of the faculty member.
  • If a student is absent a third time, he or she should officially withdraw. Although he or she may continue to attend class, a final grade of “F” may be given at the discretion of the faculty member.

For summer classes:

  • Students are allowed a maximum of one absence.
  • Two late arrivals or early departures equal one absence.
  • Absence may result in reduction of the final grade at the discretion of the faculty member.
  • If a student is absent a second time, he or she should officially withdraw. Although he or she may continue to attend class, a final grade of “F” may be given at the discretion of the faculty member.
