Chapter 4: Attendance and Preparation

Rule 4.0: Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance is required for all Skills courses. Tardiness is considered disrespectful and unprofessional and may result in not earning a skills credit.

In compliance with ABA Attendance Standards, excessive absences will be recorded and a student who is excessively absent may be subject to administrative review.  Failure to complete an assignment will lead to a grade of "DS" and the student will not earn credit. 

Rule 4.1: Preparation

Some Skills courses and Practicum courses require students to come to class prepared to practice a certain skill or complete an assignment. If an instructor deems a student is not prepared for a class or did not complete an assignment, the instructor may not award skill credit.  

Assignments received after deadline may not receive skills credit without exceptional circumstances.
