The maximum number of absence hours is limited to one more class hour than the contact hours as indicated in the BMCC college catalog.
For example, you may be enrolled in a four hour class that meets four times a week. You are allowed five hours of absence (not five days).
In the case of excessive absence, the instructor has the option to lower the grade or assign an "F" or "WU" grade.
If you do not attend class at least once in the first weeks of the semester, the instructor is required to assign a grade of “WN”
Classes begin promptly at the times indicated in the Schedule of Classes. Arrival in classes after the scheduled start time constitutes lateness. Latecomers may, at the discretion of the instructor, incur an official absence.
