Absenteeism Policy

Bacone College has adopted a policy concerning absenteeism. This policy is campus- wide and is not optional. Any student missing the cumulative average of one week of classes due to unexcused absences will be contacted by Bacone College to determine intervention strategies.

Any student missing the cumulative average of two weeks of class due to unexcused absences is required to meet with the college staff member designated to monitor
attendance 1) to further review the student’s academic needs and/or issues, 2) be suspended from further participation in his/her sport or club until perfect attendance (i.e., no unexcused absences) for two consecutive weeks has been achieved.

All faculty are encouraged to require students struggling in their classes to seek tutoring help in the Library or through student support services (for qualified students).
