Attendance Policy

Dunlap-Stone University Attendance Policy

While all courses are offered via distance learning technologies, student attendance is an important requirement for each course and program. Classroom participation is a graded element for all DSU courses. 

Students are required to attend the virtual classroom five out of the seven days during a seminar week.

Assignments are due on the day of the seminar specified (before midnight) and must have the appropriate day recorded for full credit. Participation is measured by substantive posts by the student in accordance with the guidelines set forth in the syllabus. An absence does not excuse the student from the responsibility of participation, assigned work and/or testing.  Students may be dropped for poor attendance after two consecutive weeks of absences are accumulated.
