The classroom is at the center of our College community, and so as a community we at Illinois College value class attendance. Within reason, faculty members will allow a student to make up missed assignments when an absence is necessary. Faculty members determine their own attendance policies, which are announced in the course syllabi at the beginning of each semester.
Missing classes often results in a reduction of the student’s grade. It is the student’s responsibility to check his or her schedule and drop any courses they do not want by the 10th day. After the 10th day, students may withdraw from a course they no longer wish to complete with a W grade. Failure to attend classes without withdrawing will result in the grade of F.
