Attendance Policy

  • In order for a student to attain completion of each respective program, he/she must attend all classes as scheduled.
  • If a student misses a class due to illness, the said student will be required to present a sick leave paper from a physician to be able to continue the program.
  • The student upon resuming classes will have the responsibility of obtaining the missed taught material, studying the material and ensuring that he/she understands the subject missed.
  • A student who misses a class and did not make it up by the due date as assigned by the instructor will be dropped from the group and will be allowed to join the next group whenever the classes are scheduled.

Missing a class includes being late 30 minutes to an hour late to a classroom lecture, laboratory or clinical lecture. Therefore, students must complete the required instructional hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical work.

Tardy means 10 minutes – 30 minutes late to any class.
Absence – 1 hour missed from any part of class (leaving early or coming in late)
Three tardies will count as one absence.

Missed Class
The instructor will advise the student on the chapters missed and give the student a make-up assignment with a specific date to turn in assignment. All pre-assigned course works must also be completed.

Missed Laboratory
All missed laboratory time must be made-up on open lab days, which will be announced. Failure to complete the required number of course hours for any program will result in the student’s inability to take the competency exam and be recommended for certification with the next group testing.

Missed Clinical
Each student must attend all clinical rotation days and should not be any later than 30 minutes. There is no make-up for any clinical days missed. If a student will be 30 minutes late, that student must notify the instructor. If a student did not call and show up for clinical, it will be assumed that the student has dropped the course and he/she may not return to the course.
