GRADING SCALE: A = 90 100% B = 80 89% C = 70 79% D = 60 69% F = below 60% Attendance Requirements: Prompt and regular attendance in class sessions is expected of all students enrolled at UACCM and is considered a course requirement and necessary in maintaining acceptable grades. A student, with a grade of F in a class, will be dropped from the course when the absences for that class exceed twice the number of lectures, labs, and/or other regularly scheduled class meetings during a week. (For example, a student will be dropped from a course upon the seventh absence in a three-hour class meeting three times a week, upon the fifth absence for a three-hour class meeting twice a week, or upon the third absence for a three-hour class meeting once a week.) The administrative drop policy is included as part of the course syllabus and explained at the beginning of each semester. Instructors establish the makeup policy for coursework for individual classes. In the event of an unavoidable absence because of illness or emergency, the student is responsible for contacting his/her instructor(s) regarding work missed and initiating arrangements for completing missed assignments. The instructor will initiate the administrative drop process for students with excessive absences by completing an Administrative Drop Form and submitting the completed form to the Registrars Office. Students who are dropped administratively will receive an AW on their transcript for that class. Administrative drops will not be processed after the last day to withdraw as published by the Registrars Office. An official drop notice will be mailed to the student by the Registrars Office. Students may appeal the administrative drop by submitting a written statement detailing the nature of the absences to the Vice Chancellor for Instruction. The Vice Chancellor for Instruction will consider the request, and after discussion with the instructor, may excuse absences they deem to be extenuating and beyond the control of the student.

Other Information: Assignments and activities are subject to change at the discretion of the instructor. Advance notice will be given. Cheating/academic dishonesty will not be permitted by students and will result in disciplinary action, including the possibility of failure in the course and dismissal from the college as outlined in the student handbook section of the UACCM catalog.
