Regular attendance in all classes is important for satisfactory academic progress. The Napa Valley College attendance regulations make provisions for a limited number of unavoidable absences. However, a student who is absent for as many times as a class meets each week will have exhausted this provision. An instructor may request verification of those absences. Further absences may cause the instructor to drop the student from the class.
The Students dropped from a class must submit a petition to the Vice President, Student Services in order to be reinstated. If a student is absent because of illness, a signed statement from a physician must be attached to the petition. It is important that the student contact the instructor as soon as possible after an absence has occurred. The Office of Student Services is located in Room 1330, 1300 Student Services 1 Building, 256-7360.
