Regular attendance at classes and laboratories is expected of all students. A student who is absent without explanation from a course for the first three hours of a term may be dropped from the course at the instructor's request, particularly if a course has a waiting list. The college issues no excuses for absence. Absences of students representing the college away from the campus are considered "approved absences" and are so reported to the Student Affairs Office. Students absent for one or more days should report to instructors or to the Student Affairs Office on return for advice about making up work. When an absence can be foreseen, the instructor should be consulted in advance.
