Class Attendance Policy

Classroom instruction provides an educational experience that allows students to benefit from the guidance and abilities of the instructor, as well as the exchange of values and ideas among others in the class. For that reason, class attendance is important. Each instructor is authorized to establish a class attendance policy for his or her course in a manner that recognizes the occasional circumstance preventing a student from attending class while also ensuring the maintenance of educational standards and the likelihood that the student will meet course requirements. Classroom attendance is also important for students receiving financial aid or scholarship awards from Pace as non-attendance could result in loss of this financial support and being administratively dropped from the course.
