ATTENDANCE: Regular and prompt attendance at all classes is required. Responsibility for attendance at classes rests with the student. Instructors may specify particular academic penalties for infractions of the attendance policy. Students who are absent because of religious beliefs will be given an opportunity to make up any missed examination or work requirements if they request it at least two weeks prior to the absence. No fee will be charged for this opportunity. 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE: For satisfactory reasons, the Director of Academic Advisement or the Registrar may give a student in good standing a leave of absence for a maximum period of two semesters. Requests for leave of absence must be in writing and submitted the semester prior to the semester desired. Obtain forms in the Registrar's Office. 

WITHDRAWAL/CHANGE OF PROGRAM: Students who wish to withdraw from a course must do so by the date indicated on the Academic Calendar. There is a $25 change of program fee. Withdrawal forms must be completed in the Office of the Registrar. Withdrawal from a course after the mid-term without permission of the Registrar automatically merits the grade of F. 

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE: A student who leaves the College during any semester or special session must complete a withdrawal form available from the Office of the Registrar. Students who withdraw from the College after the last posted drop date will receive grades as submitted by the faculty. Students who return after one full year, must reapply and will be subject to current curriculum requirements.
