Attendance Policies

Dept Attendance Policy:
The following attendance policy was developed and presented in the Fall 2013 semester and we have piloted this for the general education classes as the classes in the certificate programs have a separate attendance policy based on the professional standards in the field. 

Take the unit load and multiply it by 3 to come up with the maximum number of hours that a student can miss, after that, the student can be dropped. For example, for a 3-unit class, a student would be able to miss 9 hours of class. For a 3-unit class that meets two times per week, that equals a total of 6 classes. For a 2- unit class that equals 6 hours of class (2 x 3 =6), or 6 class meetings for a 2-unit class that meets two times per week. That’s the maximum amount a student can miss. After that, an instructor can drop the student. For classes that are only 1 unit or .5 units, an instructor can require a student be there the entire class or miss 3 hours from a 1-unit class and 1.5 hours from a half-unit class maximum. Three tardies equal 1 absence.

Also, please note that the faculty handbook distinguishes between excused and unexcused absences and so should we (see below): 

From the faculty handbook: Student Attendance (page 87)

Students are expected to attend classes regularly and punctually unless extenuating circumstances exist. “Extenuating circumstances” are verified cases of accidents, illness, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student. During the first week of each semester, instructors shall give students a written statement of the number and type of allowable absences that are within departmental guidelines and are based on the objectives and nature of the particular course. Students’ excessive unexcused tardiness is considered equivalent to absence. If a student exceeds the allowable number of unexcused absences, the instructor can remove the student from the class roll within certain dates as specified in the Calendar of Instruction in the College Catalog (also see Grading Policy, starting on page 85 of this handbook). A student who is absent from a class for any reason is responsible for the content covered during the absence and should check with the instructor for a make-up policy (refer to page 86 for Grading Policy for Incomplete and W grades.) 

The CCSF Faculty Handbook can be found at:

CTE Class Participation and Absence Policy

CTE Attendance Policy

All Career and Technical Education (CTE) Certificate Programs in the Health Education Department have a strict policy regarding class participation and attendance. This policy has been developed in partnership with Community Advisory Boards and are in accordance with college policy. The goal is to ensure that students attend required class sessions and are well-prepared to provide quality direct services in professional settings.

Class time is especially valuable in CTE classes, providing a vital opportunity for students to practice and refine skills with input from peers and faculty. Because absence adversely impact students’ ability to participate in class, students who miss class also lose class participation points. We strongly encourage you to attend all class sessions on time in order to promote your learning and prepare you to provide quality services and respond to challenges that will inevitably arise when working with clients. We understand that unavoidable emergencies occur and prevent students from coming to class. At the same time, students need to have sufficient class time to learn the skills they will need for work in the field.

For each in-person course, students can miss no more than three hours of class time for each course unit, with two of those hours documented excused absences. Students who miss more than the maximum hours permitted may be withdrawn (dropped) from the course. This includes missed classes and arriving more than 15 minutes late to class or leaving more than 15 minutes early (time out of class will count towards this participation and absence policy).

· For a half-unit (.5) course, students can miss no more than 90 minutes total of class, with a documented excuse for 60 of the 90 minutes.

· For a one-unit class (1), students can miss no more than three hours total of class, with a documented excuse for two of those hours.

· For a two-unit class (2), students can miss no more than six hours of class, with a documented excuse for four of those hours.

· For a three-unit class (3), students can miss no more than nine hours of class time, with a documented excuse for six of those hours.

In other words, of the total time students can miss class without being dropped, 2/3 of the missed class must be documented excused absences. Excused absences include documented emergencies and unavoidable conflicts with class sessions, such as a severe illness, court date, immigration hearing or similar situation.

For hybrid classes, participation and absence policies will be pro-rated or linked to the number of hours that students are required to be in class (versus studying online) and clearly stated in each course syllabus.

Please monitor your class participation and attendance closely to ensure that you did not exceed the maximum number of hours that can be missed. If you are unable to attend class, please email your instructor and – if relevant - check the online Canvas course website to keep up with the curriculum and assignments. If you have questions about this policy, please talk with your instructor as soon as possible.

Copier Policies and Duplicating 

Please remember all copy usage should be for departmental use only. 

If you have large copy jobs that needs to be done quickly (i.e. syllabus that was not done by the duplicating department on time), here are a few options Ocean campus:

  • Science Building 224 
  • Cloud Hall 352 
  • Batmale 108
  • Arts Building (2nd  Floor)

Science building has the best functioning copier with staple functions. Cloud Hall has one new copier that has a stapleless staple option. 

Please remember, if you submitted a copy job to duplicating services, you can follow up with Anita Yee to check on the status. If you submitted a copy job via email and want to cancel, please follow up with an email or phone call to cancel the job.

The process for making copies is as follows:

1. Make small copy jobs yourself with the new copier in the Health Education Department's Kitchen.
2. Send larger requests (syllabus, applications, handouts, etc) directly to Duplication Services in Batmale at least a week in advance (or earlier).  You can email your requests to
3. Send smaller requests (one or two page copies) directly to student workers by emailing and include your copy code.  Please send these requests at least 24 hours in advance (or earlier). While we do our best, due to staffing and technology constraints, we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to process last minute requests for copies.   

Copy Policy

The copier located in the kitchen is for limited copies only. Please use the Duplicating Center locate on the 1st floor of Batmale Hall for most of your copy jobs. They request copy jobs to be submitted with at least one week lead time. The department copier is not designed for large volume use.  Therefore, we strongly recommend that you send your copying needs to the Duplicating Services on campus in advance. Please remember to log out after every use by clicking the "door" button.
