Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 98Because this course is an independent study, we will meet once weekly initially, then once every other week. Attendance policy is as follows:
You are allowed two absences for personal reasons.Because we meet twice weekly, this is equal to 3 absences.
Additional absences will incur penalties:
3-4 absences: Loss of one full letter grade. (A grade of "A" will become a "B"; a grade of "B" will become a "C"; etc.
5-6 absences: Loss of two full letter grades. (A grade of "A" will become a "C"; a grade of "B" will become a "D"; etc.
If you experience extenuating circumstances, you must produce documentation regarding your absence (illness, a death in the family, other reasons). However: regardless of reason, excessive absences will result in a failure to pass the course.
Athletes: I will need documentation from your coach if you must be absent. No exceptions.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities.
