AFU students are expected to attend every class session for which the students are duly registered. Students are responsible for material covered in class and the completion of assigned work by the announced due dates. It is the responsibility of the individual faculty member to inform students of AFU’s attendance and make-up work policies in the course syllabus or other written documents.
Failure to attend class regularly will lead to:
A first warning if the students’ absences exceed 10% of the course hours
A second warning if the absences exceed 20 % of the course hours
A failing grade (FA) in the course if the absences exceed 25% of the course hours
Certain situations are recognized as College-excused absences from class, including:
Participation in an athletic activity approved by the Dean
Participation in a scheduled curricular or co-curricular activity approved by the Dean
Instructors should excuse absences of the above nature if the student follows the guidelines listed below. If possible, the instructor should allow the student to make up the class work or complete an alternative assignment.
A student who anticipates absences of this nature:
Must provide his or her instructors with a list of dates of expected absences by the end of the first week of class and discuss with each instructor the impact of such absences.
If the instructor deems that the absences will interfere with the student’s ability to successfully complete the objectives of the course, the student must seek to reduce the absences or withdraw from the course.
Should arrange in advance of the absence for make-up of any work that will be missed.
