After a student has officially registered in classes, the student may add a course, change a section, drop or withdraw from a course within certain dates specified in the Calendar of Instruction. Information regarding these procedures is available in the online time schedule or from the office of Admissions and Records.
A student who stops attending a course and does not file an official drop form with the Office of Admissions and Records may be marked as having failed the course by his/her instructor. Pg. 19 2013-2014 Catalog
Attendance at the first class session is very important. Your instructor MAY drop you if you do not attend. If you must be absent during the first few days of class, contact the instructor directly.
Do not rely on the instructor to drop or withdraw you from class for non-attendance. If you have registered for a class, but no longer attend it, or have never attended it, you must drop or withdraw from the class.
Students are expected to attend class regularly and punctually. At the first class meeting, the instructor will give students a written statement of how many times a student can miss class. Excessive tardiness may be considered equivalent to absence. If a student exceeds this number, the instructor may remove the student from the class roll within certain dates as specified in the Calendar of Instruction (see the section under Credits and Grades entitled “W” Withdrawal). If a student disagrees with having been removed from the class roll, the student can appeal to the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs. The student will not be allowed back into the class unless the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs and the instructor agree.
A student who is absent from a class for any reason is responsible for the content covered during the absence and for making up any course work that was required. In noncredit successfuly compeltion is 80% attendance and a passing letter grade or A, B, C, P (P Grades are not eligble for program certificate offerings). Pg. 19 2013-2014 Catalog
In both the credit and noncredit programs, only students who are officially enrolled in a course may attend class. Classes may not be audited. However, some noncredit classes are offered through a concurrent enrollment option for students who are interested in enrolling in a class but not interested in receiving credit.
Financial assistance consists of grants and student employment programs offered singly or in combinations to students who demonstrate financial need.
