*Failure to maintain 100% attendance during portions of these programs will result in dismissal. 

All attendance polices allow students to maintain the 90% required attendance. Instructors will maintain the official record, but it is the responsibility of the student to keep track of his/her attendance. 

Students receiving Title IV Funding (Pell and/or Student Loans) must also comply with Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to maintain funding. Please monitor SAP policy to understand how attendance affects money to be distributed from Title IV.

Tardy: 

Time is rounded up to the next 15 minute increment if you are late or leave early. If you are tardy or leave early 3 times one scheduled class time (for ex. If your class meets for a 5 hour day, 5 hours will be deducted) will be deducted from your time, in addition to the time already deducted, each time this occurs.

Appeal Process (attendance)

When a student has reached the maximum number of days allowed in a payment period (in the program listed in the attendance policy), they must file an appeal to remain in the program. The student must describe in detail, with documentation, any undue hardship or circumstance, which may have cause failure to maintain attendance. The student must also indicate what has changed that will allow the student to meet the standards of progress from this point forward. A review board (consisting of the Adult Director, Financial Aid Coordinator or Admissions Coordinator, Program Coordinator and Program Instructor) will be convened to consider the appeal. Appeals will be reviewed on an individual basis. Students will be notified in writing as soon as a decision is made, no later than two weeks.
