ITEC2120:Spring2008:Section 1:Attendance Policy
You are expected to attend every class. Failure to attend class will affect your grade. Special arrangements to take a regular exam early must be made in advance via the Absence Notification Form. Early exams are available only at the instructor’s discretion and only under extreme circumstances. You must notify your instructor every time you are absent via the Absence Notification Form, whether that absence is excused or unexcused. If the absence is unexcused, simply put 'unexcused' in the explanation part.
IF an emergency arises and you miss an exam you MUST notify your instructor on the same DAY as the exam via the Absence Notification Form. At the instructor’s discretion, make-up work may have a different format or different content from the regular assignment. Make-up work should be completed within two days of the original due date. Work missed due to unexcused absences will be given a grade of zero.
Students who never attend a class by the end of the first two weeks of the term will be reported for non-attendance. Students who do not drop a class during the schedule adjustment period and are reported for non-attendance will be automatically dropped from that course.
If you feel that you are unable to complete your courses due to illness or family emergency, contact the Registrar’s Office or the Office of Enrollment Management to attempt to withdraw from your courses without penalty.
As stated in the GGC Catalog: "Students whose absences exceed two-thirds of the total class meetings in a semester may be administratively withdrawn from the course by the instructor. This includes excused and unexcused absences. A student administratively withdrawn from a course due to excessive absences may re-enroll for that course in a subsequent semester during which the course is offered."
