Registration Policies

Administrative Drop Policy

Regular attendance is required for all Richland classes. At midterm the College can administratively drop students who have failed to meet attendance requirements of the instructor. Failure to attend the first two classes of a course may also cause a student to be dropped. Students must not assume they will be automatically dropped because they have not attended class and must complete a "Change of Schedule" form available in the Student Records Office in order to stop attending a class.
