Cambridge College expects students to attend all regularly scheduled class meetings. Students are responsible for adhering to course attendance/participation as outlined in the course syllabi. Attendance and active participation in class (including active participation in group projects and online courses) are essential components of the learning process and are important factors in student success.

Instructors may adjust course grades due to unexcused absences or failure to participate, provided this is clearly stated in the course syllabus.

In all cases, including courses taught online, course requirements (exams, presentations, group projects, labs, reports, participation in discussion, and all other types of coursework assigned) are not waived due to class absence. Alternate or additional work may be assigned at the instructor’s discretion.
