Changes To Attendance Policy

Beginning Summer 2010, during the one-week period immediately following the first day of class, each faculty member notifies the Office of Registrar of those students on the class roster who have never attended class or logged into their online course. The students will be dropped and the course will not appear on the students’ permanent academic records. All students must understand that if they are not attending a required class (learning support, regents and DART) ALL courses will be dropped! Students are responsible for understanding that being dropped may result in loss of financial aid and/or may affect the amount of financial aid awarded.

ALSO, Up until midterm or “last day to drop without academic penalty,” the faculty member may withdraw any student who has ceased to attend and the student will receive a grade of “W” on their academic record. All students must understand that if they are not attending a required class (learning support, regents and DART) ALL courses will be dropped!

After midterm or “last day to drop without academic penalty,” faculty can continue to withdraw any student who has ceased to attend; however, the student will receive a grade of “WF” on their academic record. The student is responsible for understanding that withdrawal or faculty withdrawal may result in loss of financial aid and that failing to properly withdraw from a course may result in receiving a failing grade of F for that course.
