Attendance is critical to a student's academic progress. Students are expected to be present, prepared, and an active participant. Students should discuss absences with instructors. The attendance policy for a particular course will be shared in class and included in the course syllabus. 

If you are receiving financial aid, be aware that failure to attend classes may affect your financial aid.

Non-Attendance (No Show Policy)

Failure to actively participate in any course, during the first 10% of a course’s actual hours of instruction, is considered non-attending. This includes participation in online courses beyond logging into the course. If an instructor reports a student as non-attending, the student is removed from the course and notified of their removal via their Blackhawk student email. At this point, students are no longer considered registered in that course and cannot start attending unless approval from the instructor is received. If permitted, the student must re-register by contacting Registration and Records. Removal from a course due to not attending may affect financial aid.

Students are responsible for the cost of any course they are registered in after the start of the semester. Please refer to the Blackhawk event calendar for important dates regarding semester deadlines.
