Attendance and Punctuality Policy


Emerging Technologies Institute believes that good attendance is important in maximizing students’ learning experiences and that punctuality is an essential factor in the classroom and a critical practice in the business world. For these reasons, regular attendance and punctuality at scheduled class times are expected of all students.

Instructors are required to take attendance 30 minutes after the scheduled start of a class. Any student who is not present and seated by that time will be counted absent for the entire hour. If the student fails to show, he or she will, of course be counted absent for the entire class.

Any student who, for any reason, misses more than 20% of any course will fail the course. Any student who, for any reason, misses more than 20% of the total number of clock hours for a program will be dismissed from the school.

All class work and assignments missed because of absence must be made up by the student, whether the absence is excused or unexcused. An excused absence is one for which the student has given advance notice to the instructor that he or she will be unable to attend a particular class. An unexcused absence is one for which no advance notice was provided.

Missed work and/or assignments must be completed within one week following the absence. Any missed examination must be taken on the first day of return following the absence. Only one make-up exam is allowed per course. A second missed exam will result in failure of the course.
