Procedure 3.01.37 - Student Absences from Curriculum Courses and Official College Events


Co-curricular activities, as well as extra-curricular student activities, are a valuable part of the college experience. However, every effort should be made to schedule such activities at times that will minimize conflicts with other required class activities.

Students who miss class because of participation in official college functions must notify their instructors prior to the absence. Under normal circumstances, absences should not result in the students’ total absences exceeding the maximum allowed by the course syllabus. If, however, absences result in a violation of the class attendance policy, then students must obtain written approval from the class instructor in order to be eligible to participate in the official college function.
