Cross-Reference: Student Attendance Operating Procedure 314.01


This Policy defines attendance standards for students enrolled in credit courses (both in-person and online) at Johnson County Community College (JCCC). 

Attendance Standards

Educational research demonstrates that students who regularly attend and participate in all scheduled classes are more likely to succeed in college. Punctual and regular attendance at all scheduled classes, for the duration of the course, is regarded as integral to all courses and is expected of all students. Each JCCC faculty member will include attendance guidelines in the course syllabus that are applicable to that course, and students are responsible for knowing and adhering to those guidelines. Students are expected to regularly attend classes in accordance with the attendance standards implemented by JCCC faculty.

The student is responsible for all course content and assignments missed due to absence. Excessive absences and authorized absences are handled in accordance with the Student Attendance Operating Procedure.
