Attendance Policy

Attendance Policy

Each faculty member has full responsibility for determining the purposes of class meetings of courses for which he or she is responsible. At the first meeting of the class, each student shall receive a written statement of the requirements for the course including those of attendance as demanded by the nature and purposes of the course.

Each student is expected to fulfill the attendance requirements as determined by the faculty member. Failure to attend classes without a valid excuse as determined by the faculty member may be factored into the evaluation of the student’s performance and achievement for the course. 

Absence from class due to illness or personal reasons should be handled by the student and faculty member on an individual basis. Students who will be absent for a prolonged period of time shall contact the Dean's Office of the respective school or college, who will notify the faculty of the student’s situation. 

An absence of any length requires that the student discuss with his/her professor(s) what impact the absence may have on the student’s academic progress. 

NOTE: Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from a course(s). 

Each student shall be required to take all examinations on the days scheduled for such, as announced in advance by the faculty member responsible for the course. 

To ensure compliance with Federal and State aid requirements, instructors are required to keep
attendance records, complete Mid-Semester Audit Report Forms, and certify the last date of attendance of students receiving aid as will enable instructors to complete the monthly Veterans Attendance Rosters and the Mid-Semester Audit Report forms and to certify the last date of attendance of students receiving aid. 

Students enrolled in Joint Programs (NJCU/Rutgers) and (NJCU/NJIT) shall at all times be required to follow the rules and regulations established by affiliated clinical, governmental, accreditation agencies, professional associations and any other institution, agency, or organization participating in the Joint Program. They shall do so under the specific instruction of the supervisory staff of those agencies.
