Student Financial Responsibility
Students should not rely upon being dropped for non-attendance as a way to withdraw from a course. If you will not be able to attend or complete a course, you should immediately take steps to drop it. Courses not dropped will be graded. For information on your financial responsibilities, refer to the student financial responsibility statement. For help, contact Enrollment Assistance at 913-469-3803.
Reinstatement into Class
If you are dropped from a course, you will have 5 working days to complete the Course Reinstatement Form. The form must be signed by the appropriate instructor and division administrator. The reinstatement form may be obtained in the Success Center.
If you are under obligation to participate in jury duty, a generally recognized religious observance or activities where you are required to represent the college, you must give written notice to the instructor at least one week in advance of the observance. Questions regarding a recognized religious observance or obligation should be directed to the Dean of Student Success and Engagement.
When granted the extenuating circumstance, you will be given the opportunity to independently make up course work for the day(s) the event was scheduled and take a scheduled exam at an alternate time determined by the instructor. Failure to provide timely written notice may result in loss of this opportunity. The instructor is not obligated to repeat any lab or other in-class experiences you miss while absent. You should be aware that the quality of your learning experience may suffer as a result of your absence.
For all other absences, authorization of excuse is the province of the individual instructor and subject to the standard appeal process. If you receive benefits from a governmental agency, you must follow any policy the specific agency stipulates.
