As an higher learning institution, we expect our students to act with professionalism, courtesy, and integrity in all aspects of behavior.
AAU Attendance Policy (School-wide)
Class attendance is required. Each course requires that the student be present at, and participate in every class session. Failure to attend classes, tardy arrivals and early departures will be reflected in final grades as follows:
AAU Late Assignment Policy Assignments and projects have deadlines to which students must adhere. Failure to submit an assignment or complete a project on time may be reflected in the grade for that assignment/project.
Excused Absences (School-wide)
Excused absences are at the discretion of the instructor. Absences are excused on the following grounds only: illness, injury or other medical necessity accompanied by a doctor’s note; death in the student’s family.
There is no substitution for information or demonstrations missed due to an absence. Students who miss a project deadline, presentation or exam due to an excused or unexcused absence will be penalized according to the individual instructor’s grading policy.
On-campus courses: An excused absence and the acceptance of late work are determined by the instructor. For information on excused absences, please ask your instructor. They will give you the details.
Online courses: An excused absence must be approved by the instructor and communicated to the Cyber Campus Department in a timely fashion. For information on excused absences, please ask your instructor. They will give you the details.
