Class Attendance Policy
Due to its direct correlation with the learning process and academic success, class attendance is required of all Lincoln College students. Students whose number of absences is more than twice the number of class meetings per week may be assigned a grade of “F” in the course at the instructor’s discretion. Students whose number of absences is less than twice the number of class meetings per week may be penalized at the instructor’s discretion. An instructor may consider tardiness to be equivalent to absence or partial absence in calculating hours of absences. The attendance policy for each class will be stated on the course syllabus.
It is the student’s responsibility to inform instructors in advance of scheduled absences and to make arrangements to complete missed classroom work in compliance with the policy defined on the course syllabus.
