|Regular attendance is expected and beneficial
for group discussions and the sharing of experiences.† Students who do not attend class by the 10%
(Census) date, will be reported as Not Attending, and will not be allowed
access to the class.† Due to the nature
of this course, participation in discussions, activities, and exercises is of
key importance.† Much of the learning
in this course takes place through student-instructor interaction and student
participation.† In accordance with the
TST department, students who miss more than 20% of the class meetings will be
in danger of failing the course unless special arrangements have been made
with the instructor.
Students may not miss more than two (2) seated classes for the duration of the class without penalty.† The studentís final grade will be reduced by ten (10) points at the time of the second unexcused absence.† Thereafter, for each additional absence, the final grade will be reduced by another five points.† Anyone entering class after the start time of the class is considered tardy.† Every two (2) tardies will count as one (1) absence.
Students must provide each instructor a written request to have an excused absence at least one week prior to the absence.† It is the responsibility of the student to work with his/her instructor in advance of the absence on how to make up missed work.
Excused absences include:† Military deployment (with documentation) and emergency hospitalization (with documentation).† Students at Central Piedmont Community College may take two days of excused absences for religious observances required by their faith each academic year consistent with North Carolina General Statute 115D-5(u); S.L. 2010-112, s.

course; whether the course will be offered again in the future; whether
withdrawing will delay plans to transfer graduation; or whether withdrawing
will affect eligibility for honors designation, health insurance benefits, or
other financial arrangements.
