Attendance Requirement

You must attend the first class meeting and/or orientation of each new class whether it's a lecture or a laboratory.  If you cannot be there, notify your instructor in writing, via email or by phone no later than 24 hours prior to the start of class.  Without prior notification, you may be dropped from the class and wait list students could be admitted in your place.  For instructor email addresses and telephone extensions, select the Directories on the home page.

Regular attendance at all class sessions is a primary obligation of the student. Regular participation in distance learning and TBA components is part of attendance, with minimum time required each day or week depending on the course section. Both the successful completion of college work and the financial support of the college are dependent on regular attendance. Students are required to remain for the entire period. Each college instructor will explain the absence policy for his or her class at the beginning of the semester; however, failure to attend regularly may result in a reduction of the student's final grade, or in the student being dropped from the class altogether. In the event of a prolonged illness, instructors should be notified either by the student or by Health Services. Veterans should contact the Financial Aid/Veterans Affairs office on the Santa Maria campus.
