5.  Attendance Policy - Online

Online courses at CCC are asynchronous, and students will have weekly requirements for participation. Logging into the online class does NOT quantify as attending the course. Attendance Activities may encompass the following: submitting an academic assignment, taking an exam, or participating in an online discussion. Attendance is established during the first week of an online course by completing the Attendance Activity. Additional coursework will be required during the first week that will impact the student’s grade. The first week of the online course begins at 8:00 am (CST) on the course start date through 11:55 pm (CST) on the 7th day. Students will be administratively withdrawn from the course for failure to meet the attendance requirement, and the institution's refund policy will be applied.
