Class attendance is considered an important part of the educational process at American College. Therefore, all students are expected to attend their classes punctually and regularly. Individual faculty members set the specific guidelines for attendance and penalties for excessive absences. Failure to attend classes may result in administrative withdrawal from the course or failure in a course.
In cases of personal or medical emergency, a student must receive permission for absence from classes from his/her tutor. Absence from classes does not excuse students from coursework or their obligation to complete an assignment on time. In any case, students are responsible for making up missed course work.
A student who misses an announced examination (other than a final examination) because of illness or other good reason must immediately, upon returning to class, present to his/her tutor a report from a physician or other acceptable explanation for the absence.
