It is very important for students to attend all classes. If a class is missed, it will be up to the student to learn what he/she missed. Attendance guidelines for each class are determined at the department level.
Students should notify instructors, ahead of time, if they know they will be absent.
If you are concerned about your student’s class attendance, speak with him/her. The college follows federal FERPA privacy laws and will not discuss grades or attendance with parents.
