Supplemental Syllabi Information


Absence
Students are expected to attend classes in which they are enrolled. Attendance may be a factor in grading for a course. When unavoidable absence occurs, it is the obligation of the student to notify the instructor and arrange for the make-up work deemed necessary by the instructor. A member of the Washington National Guard or any other military reserve component, who misses any form of participation/attendance in a class due to being ordered to service for 30 days or less or requiring medical treatment for that service, is entitled to make up academic assignments without prejudice to the final course grade or evaluation. Documentation must be submitted prior to absence. Contact the Veterans Affairs Office for information.

The Academic Early Warning System
Your instructor may use the Academic Early Warning (AEW) system to let you know if s/he has concerns about your academic performance early enough to give you time to improve. If your instructor uses AEW to let you know what you need to work on, a letter will be sent to your home along with a list of free campus services that can assist you. As not all instructors will use AEW, it is your responsibility to be aware of how you are progressing in your classes. Learn more about the Academic Early Warning System at http://www.clark.edu/student_services/aew/.
