Attendance Policy

Students are required to regularly attend each class in the program in which the student is enrolled.

Any anticipated absences should be notified to the instructor and school director as soon as possible. Written documentation that indicates the reason for being absent may be required and students are responsible for making up work missed during any absences.

Early departures, class cuts, tardies, etc., for any portion of a class period will be counted as (1) absence.

Attendance is recorded on a daily basis and attendance percentage monitored at the end of each module. It is the policy of the School to identify students whose attendance falls below acceptable standards of 75% for a three week module due to unexcused absences. Students who fall below 75% cumulative attendance of unexcused absences at the end of a module will be placed on a three weeks probation period.

Probation Attendance Violation: A student who has been placed on a three weeks probation period must achieve an attendance percentage minimum of 75% by the end of the probationary period (3 weeks module) or be subject to termination from the program.

A student’s enrollment will be terminated when a student attains five (5) consecutive unexcused absences or fails to establish an approved leave of absence under the leave of absence policy.

The school allows reasonable absences, such as personal illness, death in the family, court appointments, etc. These absences are considered as excused absences and the student will not be penalized for it. However, students must advise the school of all intended absences.

If there are extenuating circumstances that prevent a student from attending classes for an extended time period (e.g. hospitalization and recovery from a serious accident or illness) for more than five (5) days, the student should notify the school to request a leave of absence.

Students who miss class because of religious beliefs or practices will be excused from class or examinations on that day. The instructor is responsible for providing the student with an equivalent opportunity to make up any examination, study, or work requirement that the student may have missed.

A student that attains (5) consecutive days or more of excused absences will be required to retake the course in which the student was attending prior to the absences upon returning to school. The student will not incur any additional charges for retaking the course needed and will be notified of the extended graduation date.

VETERAN'S ATTENDANCE POLICY

Early departures, class cuts, tardies, etc., for any portion of a class period will be counted as (1) absence.

Students exceeding 15% total absences in a calendar month will be terminated from their VA benefits for unsatisfactory attendance.

In order to show that the cause of unsatisfactory attendance has been removed, students must show good attendance (as defined) for one calendar month after being terminated for unsatisfactory attendance. After such time, the student may be recertified for VA education benefits.

The student’s attendance record will be retained in the veteran’s file for USDVA and SAA audit purposes.
