Attendance is recorded at Ameritech, and there may be consequences to course grades and/or enrollment status due to lack of attendance/absences:
In the Medical Assisting (MA) program, attendance is part of the professionalism and participation grade, which is 10% of a student’s overall grade for each class. If a student is absent more than three (3) times from a course, 10% will be deducted from the student’s overall grade at the end of the term.
In the Associate of Science in Nursing program, more than one absence from any lecture class, lab, SCE, or clinical may result in the student being immediately withdrawn from the course.
In the Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program, more than one absence from any lecture class, lab, or fieldwork may result in the student being immediately withdrawn from the course.
In the online RN BSN program, attendance is tracked through participation in the online course (see Online Attendance, below). Weekly attendance is required.” (Ameritech College Catalog 2019-2020 Academic Year).
