Attendance Policy (last updated Fall 2005)
Absences from class are a serious deterrent to good scholarship. The College, therefore, stresses regular class attendance, but recognizes that students should have an opportunity to develop personal responsibility and should have some discretion in attendance to meet the demands imposed by other responsibilities.
Students anticipating absences should notify their instructor in advance. If prior notification is not possible, the student should contact the instructor immediately upon returning to the College to determine the next course of action.
Students are expected to be in attendance at least 90% of all scheduled class hours. In the event that a student's absences in a class exceed 10% and the absences are not justified to the satisfaction of the instructor, the instructor will submit a Student Course Withdrawal Form to the Financial Aid Office to document the last date of attendance. The Financial Aid Office will forward the form to the Registration and Students Records Services Division for appropriate recording.
Student Course Withdrawals received for students with the last day of attendance prior to or on the 60% point of the term will result in a grad of "W."
Student Course Withdrawals received for students with a last day of attendance after the 60% point of the term will result in a grade of "WF" or "WP" as indicated by the faculty. A grade of "WF" indicates that the student was failing at the time of withdrawal and will count the same as an "F" grade in the grade-point average calculation. A grade of "WP" indicates that the student was passing at the time of withdrawal and will count the same as a "W" grade in the grade-point average calculation.
Make-Up Test Policy
Accountants and other business people are frequently faced with deadlines in their work. Training for meeting deadlines would include being prepared for tests at the scheduled time. We recognize that factors such as a death in the student's immediate family or a student's serious illness may cause someone with the best intentions to miss a test. For those students who deserve it, make-up tests will be given on a day determined by the College or by the individual instructor.
Code of Conduct
Wake Technical Community College has very high standards of personal integrity and conduct that are enumerated in the College Catalog. Penalties for cheating and plagiarism can range from getting a '0' on a test or assignment up to expulsion from a course and a recorded grade of an "F".
