English Division Course Attendance Policy for Students
The English Division is united in its mission to give a quality educational opportunity to all students in all our classes. Because our classes are basically writing, reading, and literature classes, an understanding and improvement of all language skills is dependent on the social aspect of sharing one’s work, looking at the work of others, completing in class assignments and writing, participating in workshops, listening and interacting with the instructor, creating a community of readers and writers that every student can depend on, and a host of other activities that requires a significant commitment to class attendance. All research in this area shows that success is highly related to attendance. Therefore, as a division, we have an attendance policy (as do other academic areas of the college). Here they are:
Within the guidelines of federal and/or state law provisions, your English instructor may drop you from a course if you miss the first class session and/or more than 2/15 (two fifteenths) of the class sessions for this course. *Dropping or being dropped from this course may have an impact on your current or future financial aid award; see a financial aid advisor.
