New Attendance Policy

We are pleased to share with you that we have adopted a new student friendly interim attendance policy effective for the January 11, 2016 start (see below). This policy was developed with students in mind, and while we have not heard from all faculty and staff, we believe that you will approve of this change. Please note that this is an interim policy which must still be approved by the Policy Development and Review Committee and is still open for input.

If for any reason you have any questions, concerns or input, please be sure to email rqst-comm@coleman.edu. The feedback you provide will be considered the next committee meeting prior to formal adoption of the policy.

Also, students will be emailed about the changes and an announcement will be posted on Webclass. Please make sure you are familiar with the interim policy and encourage students to visit the website for the catalog which contains the policy.

Proposed

Students who do not attend class during the first schedule week will be administratively removed from roster and a No Grade (NG) grade will be recorded on the student’s record. A grade of NG is non-punitive.

4 Unit Course
Students who are not in attendance for 3 cumulative classes during weeks 2 through 6 will be administratively removed from roster and a Withdrawal (W) grade will be recorded on the student’s record. A grade of W can impact the student’s Incremental Completion Rate (ICR).
