Clinical Absence Policy

Attendance at clinical is mandatory and all absences will require makeup for the allotted hours missed.  Students should refer to specific clinical experience guidelines for reporting any absence. More than 3 total absences in any given course within the major may result in a clinical failure which would be a course failure, and may be referred for evaluation as a possible violation of the Student Code of Conduct. Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed on an individual basis by course faculty and program administration. Three absences are per course and not per semester or academic year.
