Seminole State College
Did you know...Seminole State has more than 190 college degrees, certificates and programs.
Per Seminole State College Policy 3.060, the College recognizes the correlation between attendance and both student retention and achievement. Students must be enrolled before they can attend class. Students are expected to attend all class sessions and activities for which they are registered. Any class session or activity missed, regardless of the cause, reduces the opportunity for learning and may adversely affect a student's achievement in the course. A student who is absent from class 10 percent of the scheduled class time is subject to be withdrawn without warning by the instructor up to the published deadline date for the session. A student may not be re-admitted to the class once withdrawn.
A student who will be absent because of jury duty or a court-mandated appearance must contact the appropriate instructors in advance of the absence to establish a plan for making up missed lessons. When observance of a religious holiday of a student's own faith interferes with admission and registration, attendance in class, class activities and assignments, examinations or official ceremonies; the student is required to notify his instructors, counselors or other appropriate personnel in advance of such absences.
Students are held responsible for material covered during their absences, with reasonable time provided to complete make-up assignments. Instructors will create a plan for making up work missed. When practical, major class assignments, examinations and official ceremonies shall be scheduled on days other than those that coincide with major religious holidays. Students who believe they have been unreasonably denied educational benefits due to their religious beliefs or practices may seek redress through the student appeals procedures.
Distance Learning Attendance
The instructor will keep an accurate record of attendance at all class sessions and activities. In distance learning courses (online, video, media-based courses), professors define expected interaction within the course and/or with other students and expected use of the class website and/or media. Inconsistent interaction and/or inconsistent use of the website or media, regardless of cause, reduces the opportunity for learning.
The professor may withdraw from the course any student who is not interactive or responsive in a timely manner, as specified by the professor. Professors, who have mandatory orientations for distance learning courses, may withdraw students who do not attend the required orientation.
Simply logging in to an on-line class does NOT count as attendance. Students must engage in an academically-related activity.
International Students' Attendance
International students are expected to abide by the College attendance policy and meet the Standards of Academic Progress. Students who do not maintain appropriate status will be reported to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
