First Week Attendance Information

Peninsula College views student attendance and participation as crucial to academic success.  Therefore, an instructor may request a student be withdrawn due to non-attendance that compromises the student’s ability to successfully complete the class. 

Withdrawal for non-attendance is not automatic.  During the first-week of the quarter, instructors may initiate an administrative withdrawal for nonattendance in a course if:

  • You fail to attend at least 50% of a face-to-face class or
  • Fail to login for at least 50% of online class activity.

If withdrawn for non-attendance you will be notified by email or mailed a letter.  Any applicable refund will process and no grade will show on the transcript.  You should schedule an advising appointment if you need to discuss your schedule.

Note:
If you plan to remain enrolled in a course(s) but know you will have attendance difficulties during the first-week of the quarter, please contact your instructor(s) immediately to request an exception to this procedure.

  • Please be aware that a withdrawal for lack of attendance or non-participation may reduce the amount of financial aid you receive, delay your graduation, or necessitate a repayment of aid already received.
