Regular class attendance and punctuality are important parts of the educational process and are required at EACC. All arrangements for a class absence are to be made with the instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate these arrangements, and it is the instructor’s decision to accept or reject make-up work.
Because each class session is important, excessive absences may result in a grade of “F” and subsequent loss of course credit. During the fall and spring semesters, a student is judged to be excessively absent when the number of absences exceeds twice the number of times a class meets in a week.
During the summer or special terms, a student is considered to be excessively absent when more than twice the number of credit hours has been missed. For example, when a student taking a 3-hour course is absent from class for more than 6 hours, that student is excessively absent.
