Students must make every effort to attend all classes and arrive to classes on time. When this is not possible, students must notify the school of absences as soon as possible.
Students who violate the Attendance Policy may be subject to dismissal in accordance with the Dismissal Policy.
If a student is absent for more than 3 consecutive days, he or she must either (1) notify the school no less than 2 days prior to the first absence, or (2) provide a medical note upon his or her return.
If a student under the age of 19 is absent for 2 or more consecutive days, he or she must provide the school with a signed letter from his or her legal guardian or custodian upon return.
If a student arrives more than 10 minutes late to a class without notifying the school, the instructor may deny him or her entry to the class. If the instructor denies him or her entry to the class, the student will accrue an absence.
An accrual of 3 late arrivals in which the instructor grants entry to a class will count as 1 day of absence.
If a student is absent for more than 5 nonconsecutive days during the course of study, a student may be asked to meet with the Student Advisor, and if the student is under the age of 19, a signed letter for a legal guardian or custodian may be requested, and the student may be subject to dismissal.
