Instructors are expected to keep a record of their students’ class attendance. Instructors may withdraw students from classes before the last date to withdraw, which is equivalent to 80% of the class, if students have been officially warned in DragonZone that their attendance has been irregular.* After a student has been officially warned that his/her attendance has been irregular, if irregular attendance continues, an instructor may withdraw the student from the class resulting in the grade of “W”. If the instructor chooses not to withdraw the student, the earned grade will be issued and the last day the student attended the class will be recorded.
Irregular attendance is defined as missing 15% of the class or a percentage less than 15% as determined by the instructor. The irregular attendance percentage and the last date to withdraw will be published on each instructor sheet.
If a student decides to appeal a withdrawal for irregular attendance, he/she must submit a written appeal to the instructor.
*For merged programs, instructors may withdraw students at any time during the term if students have been officially warned in DragonZone that their attendance has been irregular.
