Attendance – per 2022-2023 ACC Catalog & Student Handbook

“You will be informed, via a written course syllabus, of all course objectives and the instructor’s course policies. A student who is not in compliance with course policies or not meeting course objectives in the syllabus may be withdrawn from the course at the discretion of the instructor. A student who has been marked as ‘Never Attended’ on the instructor’s attendance certification roster will be administratively withdrawn from the course, effective one day prior to the official reporting date for the course.

It is your responsibility to consult with instructors and meet with your advisor when course policies and objectives, such as the attendance policy, cannot be met. You are strongly encouraged to officially drop/withdraw if you stop attending class for any reason.

Your instructor may initiate your withdrawal from class if your attendance is unsatisfactory. Instructor-initiated withdrawals count toward state limits on course withdrawals.

When the instructor withdraws a student or the student is administratively withdrawn, written notice will be sent by the College to the faculty email address and to the ACC student email address. The student may appeal a withdrawal in writing immediately upon notification within five (5) business days after receipt of the College notice of withdrawal. The written appeal shall be made initially to the course instructor who will respond in writing within five (5) business days. The student may appeal the instructor’s decision within five (5) business days to the appropriate department chair, then the dean, whose decision will be final.”


1.) Email your instructor. Students may also cc [email protected].

2.) Include your ACCeID, course number, section and synonym.

3.) Ask your instructor to be “reinstated” for one of two reasons:

  • Reason for the reinstatement (If the student dropped himself or herself, we will need an email from the students ACC Gmail account requesting to be reinstated).
  • Reason for the reinstatement (was the student marked never attended in error or did the student appeal to you to be reinstated).


If the student was dropped for non-payment (DREG), the student will need to send an email to Linda Dehning with the following information and request that she get permission from the instructor (if the student hasn’t already done so) and then submit a schedule change for them to add back to their class:

a.)    Student’s name

b.)    ACCeID

c.)    Complete course information (course number, section and synonym)

d.)    Instructor’s name
