The college attendance policy is found in the Academic Standards and Regulations section of the College Catalog (PDF document requires Adobe Reader version 10 or higher – get the latest Adobe Reader here – opens in new window).
Faculty members are not required to modify the attendance policy to accommodate students with disabilities if doing so fundamentally alters the course or program. At the student’s request, however, the OAS can provide written verification of the studentâ€™s disabilities based on appropriate documentation. This verification can address the legitimacy of absences and be used to initiate discussions with faculty members regarding attendance and make-up policies.
Students with chronic health conditions are encouraged to discuss attendance concerns with their faculty members no later than the first week of classes so that appropriate adjustments can be made to the student’s schedule if necessary.
