G.   San Antonio College Attendance Policy: Regular and punctual attendance at all classes and laboratories, day and/or evening, is required. A student absent for any reason is responsible for all work missed.  Both tardiness and early departure from class are forms of absenteeism. The instructor establishes the policy with regard to each. Absences of each student are recorded without exception. The counting of absences begins on the first day of class.  A student absent the equivalent of two weeks of instruction in a 16-week semester may be dropped by the instructor.  If a student is dropped from a class for excessive absences, the instructor will record a grade of “W’ (Withdrawal).  It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the withdrawals have been submitted.
