Regular class attendance is considered by the University as an essential element of the educational process. For this reason, class attendance is required of every student. Student participation in institutional activities will be considered a valid excuse for not attending class. Students are responsible for completing course requirements as stipulated in the course syllabus.
Students, who have not attended any classes during the first two weeks of the academic semester or its equivalent, will be dropped administratively from the course. The instructor, after receiving the class lists, will submit, in writing, the names of all such students to the Office of the Registrar through the Department Chairperson. For administrative purposes, these administrative drops will be considered equal to withdrawals for which the student has applied, as established in the Adjustments and Reimbursements section. Inter American University requires its faculty to report the last day of attendance or of any other course activity of students who drop class in each academic term. For this, the faculty must have a record of class attendance of the students, or of their participation in the other activities of the course. The faculty will report on an official class list, the last day of attendance or of student participation in course activities of those students who dropped class without having withdrawn officially from the University. The administrative action symbol NA will be used to identify these students.
The last date of class attendance will be used to determine the applicable refund for students who stop attending class without officially withdrawing. The arrangement is established in harmony with regulation "Normas de Asistencia a Clases A-AC-002-97
of September 1997.
