Attendance Policy

Learning is an interactive process between the student, faculty, and peers; consequently, it is imperative that the student be present in the classroom (in all formats) and clinical area.

Consistent attendance and participation in assigned activities is a critical element in professional development, therefore, students are expected and required to attend and participate in all scheduled experiences. Make-up activities will be determined by faculty in collaboration with students based on the nature of the missed experience, individual student needs and availability of clinical and/or faculty resources. 

Students are expected to attend all classes and participate in all planned clinical, laboratory, and/or practicum experiences. Each student is responsible for the content of all courses.

Absence may jeopardize a student’s understanding of course content and may result in a grade reduction or failure of the course. Failure to attend a course does not automatically release a student from financial obligations associated with that course. Should a student decide to drop a class or withdraw from the school, the appropriate paperwork must be completed.
