AAP Program and Course Attendance Policy

Class participation is extremely important. Adult students bring to this course varied backgrounds in business settings. Class participation is necessary to share these background experiences.

Attendance
A student is expected to attend all meetings of the class in which he or she is enrolled. To receive academic credit, a student must earn a passing grade that is determined by the combined results of class assessments, class assignments, and compliance with attendance requirements as specified in the class syllabus. A student that miss more than one class meeting must withdraw from the class prior to the fourth class meeting or be assigned the grade of F.

Any student who must miss a class meeting is responsible for contacting his or her instructor to discuss missed material. The opportunity to make up missed work is at the discretion of the instructor.

An AAP student who does not wish to remain in a class for which he or she is registered prior to the start of the session must drop that class at least 24 hours prior to the first class meeting. Failure to do so will result in the student’s being assigned the grade of F for the class as well as being billed for the class tuition. A student who does not intend to complete a class for any reason, or who has missed two class meetings, must withdraw from that class prior to the fourth class meeting or receive the grade of F for the class. That student will be responsible for the tuition accrued for the number of class meetings he or she has attended. AAP students cannot withdraw from a class after the fourth class meeting.

Attendance Policy for Online Classes
A student is expected to attend all meetings of the class in which he or she is enrolled. To receive academic credit, a student must earn a passing grade that is determined by the combined results of class assessments, class assignments, and compliance with attendance requirements as specified in the class syllabus.

A student registered for an online class must log-in to an online class by 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday of the first week of class to be counted as present for the first class. A student may drop a class until 11:59 p.m. on Friday of the first week of the session. Online classes require the submission of weekly assignments. Any student who has missed (as defined by Spalding University’s online standards) the equivalent of 25 percent of an online class should withdraw from the class or receive the grade of F for the class. A student may not withdraw from an online class after 11:59 p.m. on the 4th Friday of the session. A student who withdraws from an online class will be responsible for the tuition accrued for the chronological time that has elapsed in the class, not for the amount of work that student has completed.
