Policies

Attendance

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to establish the expectation of student attendance for all orientations, classes, seminars, labs and clinical experiences throughout their program of study.

Policy

  1. Regular and punctual attendance is expected of all students for all orientations, classes, seminars, labs and clinical experiences. A student who is consistently late and/or absent from classes, seminars and/or labs may be unable to meet the course requirements and may not be able to receive credit for the course.
  2. If a student misses more than 10% of clinical/lab experiences in a course, he/she may be unable to meet the course requirements, and thus may not receive credit for the course.
  3. If a student is unable to attend or will be late for a lab or clinical experience, he/she must notify the instructor prior to the start of the learning experience.
  4. Attendance at classes, labs and/or seminars for the particular course may be designated as mandatory. Students must attend these learning experiences in order to receive a pass in the course.
  5. If an instructor deems a student unsafe or unprepared for a learning experience, the student may be excluded from the experience; thus, the student may not be able to meet the course requirements.
