An instructor will withdraw the student if the student has not attended courses for two consecutive weeks…
Instructional time missed is a serious deterrent to learning. A student is responsible for fulfilling the requirements of the course by attending all classes (including shops, labs and clinics) and completing course assignments. An instructor will withdraw the student if the student has not attended courses for two consecutive weeks (or 12.5% of course duration), of scheduled course meetings during a 16 week semester whereby the student has not attempted intentional, ongoing communication with the instructor in person, via telephone, or campus email, to discuss the circumstances of the ongoing absence and plan their efforts to complete missed assignments. The student must maintain contact with the instructor if there are extenuating circumstances such as an accident, illness or death in the family.
Some programs and courses at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College may have more stringent attendance requirements due to the nature of a course or program. These requirements are stated in the program description or course syllabus. Students will be informed in writing during the first class meeting of specific attendance requirements. Class attendance is calculated from the first officially scheduled class meeting (includes the drop/add period) through the last scheduled meeting.
