The student attending on-campus and/or online classes is required to attend at least 80% of the class meetings for each course in which he/she is enrolled. For semester long on-campus or online courses, this means that a maximum of three class periods may be missed since Reformed University semester schedule is usually for 15 weeks. Any student who misses more than 20% of the meetings may receive an “F,” or be forced to withdraw from enrolled course. Exceptions may be made only in cases of extreme circumstances and only with the approval of the Registrar. A student whose class attendance is less than two-thirds of all the classes is not eligible to take the final exam. Those who have missed any final exams due to circumstances beyond their control are entitled to take make-up exams with instructor's approval.
a. Absences should be taken only for important and necessary reasons.b. Student is held responsible for absences due to late registration. Consequently, a student is not permitted to enroll for a course after the second full week of classes.c. Instructors will report to the Registrar any student who: (1) habitually comes in tardy or leaves early; (2) misses the whole class session three weeks in succession; (3) misses 20% or more of the classes for a particular course.d. Each instructor will employ the following institutional rules for determining absences: (1) only tardiness of less than 15 minutes may be counted as a tardy; (2) three tardiness count as one absence; (3) tardiness of more than 15 minutes counts as one hour of absence.e. Excessive absences could jeopardize the immigration status of international students. Such absences also result in one being required to repay any financial aid received as well as any additional charges incurred by Reformed University.
