Attendance Policy/Statement

 

ECC is an attendance taking institution. All faculty will distribute to students a current course syllabus that includes a statement detailing specific course attendance policy, guidelines and actions. Such course attendance policy will be congruent with the institutional attendance guidelines, as stated here.

 

Institutional Attendance Policy

 

Student attendance in class, regardless of the delivery modality, is important for student success. Faculty will take attendance at each class meeting and record attendance in a class record. For a student to be considered attending the following conditions must be met:

 

A student cannot be absent for all the class meetings held within 14 consecutive calendar days (or a prorated amount based on a reduced class meeting calendar) without having made regular and frequent contact with the instructor regarding class progress.

 

A student cannot be absent for the equivalent (intermittent, nonconsecutive absences) of two weeks of class meeting time (or a prorated amount based on a reduced class meeting calendar) without having made regular and frequent contact with the instructor regarding class progress.

 

A student cannot exceed the absences permitted under a more restrictive and specific course attendance policy.

 

Should any of these conditions apply, the faculty member will follow the actions as stated in the course syllabus up to and including administrative withdrawal (WX) from the class for any student not considered attending but still officially enrolled in the class. Regardless of any action, the faculty member will report the last date of attendance as noted in the class record.

 

Medical Absence Procedure

 

Students who are absent due to a medical condition or hospitalization are advised to speak to an academic advisor or counselor to discuss academic and personal safety issues. Depending on the circumstances, the student may be asked to provide documentation from a physician before returning to campus.
