SSCC Attendance Policy: Students are expected to attend all classes for which they are
registered, to be prompt, and to remain in class/lab for the entire time. Attendance will be
recorded at every class/lab meeting. On the final grade report, instructors are required to
identify the last day of attendance for all students who receive a grade of “F” or “U.” Students
who are unable to attend class regularly, regardless of the reason or circumstance, should
withdraw from the class. Withdrawal from class can affect eligibility for federal financial aid.
If a student is unable to attend at least 80 percent of class meetings, regardless of the reason or
circumstance, it is recommended that the student withdraw from that class; excessive absences
interfere with the student’s ability to successfully complete the course.
The college catalog and website detail standard college polices for all teaching and learning
activities. This class syllabus is intended to give further detail about the policies and
expectations in this class. Students are expected to be aware of and abide by College policies in
every class.
All students who are or have been registered for classes at Shelton State Community College
are provided an e-mail account. Students who are currently registered must have an e-mail
account. Electronic mail is the official method of communication for delivery of information.
Shelton State designated communicators may use this e-mail account to send official
communications to the student body. Student email addresses will be recorded in the college’s
electronic directories and records. To activate/sign in to your Bucs Mail account, visit the Bucs
