vi. The instructor is not required to review with the student any material missed as a result of the student being absent, nor is the instructor required to notify a student if the student is in danger of a lowered grade due to any graded work missed. vii. The instructor is not required to provide an opportunity for makeup work. The instructor’s policies regarding makeup work shall be clearly defined in the syllabus to be available on the first day of class. viii. Attendance requirements in programs that lead to board licensure or certification may differ from this policy. 2. Before the published withdrawal date (last day to withdraw with a “W”), a student may be administratively withdrawn from any course for excessive absences when the student has missed more than 20% of the total number of hours that the class meets, as a result of excused and/or unexcused absences. No student may be administratively withdrawn after the last day to withdraw with a “W” as published in the college calendar, except for extenuating circumstances. The number of absences resulting in administrative withdrawal may differ in programs that lead to board licensure or certification but must be clearly stated in the course syllabus. The form and the letter to be used to request a student be withdrawn from a class may be obtained from the Director of Admissions and Records. Instructors who plan to administratively withdraw students due to excessive absences must include that policy in their syllabus.

3. Federal regulations require each instructor to submit to the Financial Aid Office by the designated deadline the names of students who have never attended a class session.

4. Instructors must verify attendance as required by federal and state regulations. Faculty must maintain student attendance verification and grade records for a period of at least two years . Adjunct instructors must provide their student attendance verification and grade records to their respective division chairs at the end of each semester. a. Instructors’ absences or administrative class dismissals will not be counted as student absences. b. No club or organization shall interfere or support interference with the regular academic pursuit of any student by causing or encouraging non-attendance at classes or college activities without prior consent of proper college officials or by any action that might cause disruption to a student, instructor, or college activity. Sponsors of college activities must provide a list of students at least two days in advance of the activity. c. Grades must be based solely on the demonstration of the understanding of principles and concepts, or the successful application and performance of skills and competencies related to course content. However, instructors are not required to provide make-up opportunities for scheduled assessment activities and instructors may assign class participation grades, provided that these do not penalize students with excused absences.
