Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend all their classes as assigned in their schedules. At the beginning of each session, students sign the attendance policy which informs the students of the requirements and expectations.The attendance policy will also be described in each instructor's syllabus.

Attendance is crucial in order to improve language skills and maintain legal status while in the U.S. 

Appropriate measures will take place if a student is absent a certain percentage of the classes. A meeting with the director of the Intensive English Program and/or the Assistant Provost will be arranged for individual counseling to address attendance, immigration as it relates to attendance and other issues that may arise.
