Required Attendance Information

Bellevue College expects all students to attend class, or participate in an online class beginning on the first day the class officially starts.

Instructors, at their discretion may ask Student Central to drop students for non-attendance or non-participation in an online class if they miss both the first and the second day of class without informing their instructors. Attendance and participation includes physically attending an on-campus class, and logging in to an online class canvas site and participating in class discussions or other online assignment.

Students should be aware that notifying their instructors of a planned absence does not necessarily mean they can make up missed work, or that the absence does not impact their grade in the class. Students must understand their instructors’ expectations regarding submission of work and attendance by contacting their instructor/s directly.
