Students are expected to attend and participate in all class meetings, laboratories, and
Attendance: field trips. A student who expects to be absent due to another school-sponsored activity
or compelling personal reason must make prior arrangements with the instructor. All
course work must be made up as directed by the instructor. A student who does not
adhere to instructor and College attendance requirements may be dropped from the
course as defined in the Yavapai College General Catalog.

“Attendance” in an online program. Students will be responsible for checking their


email and Blackboard on a daily basis for communication and assignments from the

To officially withdraw from a course, the student must complete a Yavapai College

from a course after the published deadline for withdrawal requires instructor approval
and signature. When a student withdraws from a course, a “W” will appear on the
student’s permanent college record. If a student does not follow official procedures for
withdrawing from a course, failing grades may be posted on the student’s permanent
record.

Contact the course instructor during office hours, through e-mail or phone, or at the
Course mentoring: beginning/ending of a class session to arrange for additional course assistance. Many
