Online:

Attendance is based on assignment completion. To be counted present for the online portion, you must complete all assignments before the weekly deadline.

"Attendance in an online course is counted as one week of absences. Two incomplete weeks of assignments will result in an administrative drop.

Attendance Policy

Class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to attend all classes promptly and regularly. A record of attendance is maintained from the first day of classes and/or the first day the student’s name appears on the roster through final examinations.

Students who accrue one week worth of absences during the semester will be sent an e-mail through their Buc account requiring them to contact their instructor and immediately schedule a conference to discuss their attendance issues. Students who accumulate two weeks worth of unexcused absences will be administratively withdrawn from class.

There are four forms of excused absences recognized by the institution:

  1. Observance of religious holy days - Students should notify their instructor(s) no later than the 15th day of the semester concerning the specific date(s) for absences for any religious holy day(s);
  2. Representing the College District at an official institutional function;
  3. Dual credit students representing the high school or independent school district at an official institutional function; and
  4. Military service.

Examples of unexcused absences include, but not limited to: illness, doctor appointments, hospitalization, personal business, court appearance, vehicle breakdowns, or other unrelated business is not excused.  Exams for another class, or other school related business is not excused.

Students: you must report an absence to your instructor, using your Blinn College email account (@buc.blinn.edu) within 24 hours of the class period missed for consideration to be excused.  Your instructor will require official documentation to determine whether the absence is excused or unexcused.  Absences will not be excused at a later date if this procedure is not followed. Classes missed because you were Administratively Withdrawn from the class due to absences is not an excused absence.

What if I get dropped and I want back in the course?

If you are dropped after missing 2 weeks worth of class, you may appeal.

Students wishing to appeal an administrative withdrawal should consult their instructor first and fill out a Blinn College Student Reinstatement form. If the faculty member agree to the reinstatement request then the student and faculty completes the upper portion of the form and it is submitted to the Division Operations Coordinator.

If the faculty member does not agree to the Reinstatement Form and the student has the right to appeal. The APPEAL process is outlined on the bottom of the Reinstatement form.

 It is the student’s responsibility to initiate each step of the appeals process. The designee for Health and Kinesiology is Dr. Shelly Peacock. Contact her by your by @buc.blinn.edu e-mail, for an appointment to discuss the appeal.  Her email address is [email protected] This whole process (including decision) must be completed in 5 school days.

Students interested in dropping a course or withdrawing from school may do so by logging into myBlinn and clicking on “add/drop +/-" link, and then selecting the current registration term and “webdrop” from the action drop down menu. The final step is scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking submit.

Can I turn in my assignments late?

  • Assignments/Tests missed due to the official Blinn College excused absence policy are eligible for make-up.  Verification of these absences is mandatory.
  • Participation points may be made up outside class.
