State Attendance Requirement
Students are allowed to miss two classes, but are required to make up the missed time. Failure to make up missed time will result in course failure. If a third class or clinical session is missed, the student will fail the course. Clinical time must be made up at the clinical site, and not with a written assignment. Students may attend a lecture, lab or clinical session with another instructor to avoid grading deductions. Students are responsible to coordinate make up times with their instructor. In case of documented illness or emergency, a waiver may be granted.
